Locking roles?

I've run your password cracker which is very good and it found some Oracle default users and roles that I need to lock and expired.
Is there any way to lock or disable roles or do I just dropped them? Is it safe to have the roles in the database as long as no user is assigned to these roles where the password is the same as the name of the role?
BTW, you've mentioned woraauthbf from Sooner or Later, have you tried compiling this on any UNIX platform before?
