Yes, I know what you mean, I've managed networks of Solaris machines
before.  But I'm afraid there is no good migration path for this kind
of migration.  It would definitely be nice to have, though.  Let me
know if this is something that you'd be interested in, and I'll see if
some of the Solaris pkgsrc people (or Linux, or ...) are interested in
helping out.

Yes - this is from Mac OS X, but still holds:

        % dirs
        0       ~/pkgsrc/security/sudo
        % bmake show-options
        Any of the following general options may be selected:
                ldap     Enable LDAP support.
        At most one of the following auth options may be selected:
                kerberos         Enable Kerberos support.
                pam      Enable PAM support.
                skey     Enable S/Key support.

        These options are enabled by default:

        These options are currently enabled:

        You can select which build options to use by setting PKG_DEFAULT_OPTIONS
        or PKG_OPTIONS.sudo.

What I also meant was: note the syntax of the SU_CMD definition in mk.conf.
So you could try this:

        SU_CMD=su -m root -c

in /etc/mk.conf, or use one of the search engines to look for pkgsrc and SU_CMD.
