Your stated solution was "Require user non-existent-user
in the sub-directory .htaccess files"
This will prompt the user for a username and password correct?   I guess this would work,
but I was hoping to have the forbidden page come up right away instead of the authorization
required page come up after the user enters the wrong user name and password three times.
 If this my only solution I will do it, but I was hoping to find some way to override the
root .htaccess file.

It depends on the specific circumstances.  Some directives can be
overriden, others can't.

What was wrong with my suggested solution for your problem?
