The problem with that is that it will mean that /usr/bin/su can't
handle things like dynamically linked database modules, for dealing
with things like hesiod and such.
I would suggest that the "right" thing is to create a statically
linked su *in addition* to the normal /usr/bin/su, and copy that into
/rescue. We could easily do the makefile machinery to handle that.
