Comment (by Krejzi):

 I don't think so.

 LFS still uses shadow version of "su" in LFS since it doesn't require PAM.
 In BLFS it's the same, except it uses either PAM or Cracklib, depending on
 the installed deps. Util-Linux version of su requires PAM to be present in
 order to build, so unless you were rebuilding Util-Linux *after* you have
 installed Linux-PAM, there is no way you could install Util-Linux version
 of "su".

 For your information, su -l with the shadow version of su built with PAM
 as described in BLFS works for me.
