I read recently that su and login are build from util-linux in most
distributions..

Alpine linux builds currently from suckless implementation..

Taking in consideration the extra work that produce it! will implement
the behaviour of the default from util-linux or will go ahead withthe
suckless defaults ?

That mail are due seem will be a standar now!

Looks like we have 3 su implementations: busybox, shadow, and ubase
(suckless).

I'm not sure I understand your question. Alpine default `su` uses
busybox implementation, but requires bbsuid to work. If this is not
sufficient for you, you can install either `shadow` or `ubase`.
