Possibly I can even have a su without pam for this purpose - now that I
think about it.

Another idea, what about just build ignoring the dependency of pam to
krb5? That breaks pam_unix but su as called by the build script skips
calling anyways due to use of for auth and
account. AFAICS pam_unix doesn't do anything useful in session either
(just syslogs the call). So it's 'required' flag in common-sessoin could
be changed to 'optional' without negative impact.
That way su when called by root would still work despite broken pam_unix
