SU_CMD gets invoked with a (possibly complex) shell command as a single
argument. This is not documented, but you can figure it out from the
fact that the default SU_CMD is something like "su - root -c", and that
invocation of su expects a shell command as a single argument.
To use sudo, set SU_CMD=sudo sh -c. This is mentioned in
