I ran precisely that command, and then "make", and it worked for me:
it did create su, as well as src/ginstall in the build directory.
I didn't run "make install" because I don't want to install
into the default prefix of /usr/local.

However, I confirmed that "sudo make install prefix=$PWD/inst" did
install su into $PWD/inst/bin.

Maybe you ran "make install" as non-root?
In that case, you should see this:

    WARNING: insufficient access; not installing su
    NOTE: to install su, run 'make install-root' as root

If you still have a problem,
please provide more detail, like copy/pasted make output,
including the actual commands you ran.
