Thanks to everyone who responded to my "su" command problem.
Most everyone suggested I trace the execution using truss. I did, and
was able to determine the Basic Security Module (BSM) was involved in
"su" being unable to execute. About this time, Andrew Scarman at Sun
Microsystems Australia sent the magic answer, Sun Patch-Id
#103696-01. I have installed the patch and "su" is now working.

Again, thanks to all:
