The su --help give this messages:
Usage: su [OPTION]... [-] [USER [ARG]...]
Change the effective user id and group id to that of USER.

 -, -l, --login               make the shell a login shell
 -g --group=group             specify the primary group
 -G --supp-group=group        specify a supplemental group
 -c, --commmand=COMMAND       pass a single COMMAND to the shell with -c
 --session-command=COMMAND    pass a single COMMAND to the shell with -c
                              and do not create a new session
 -f, --fast                   pass -f to the shell (for csh or tcsh)
 -m, --preserve-environment   do not reset environment variables
 -p                           same as -m
 -s, --shell=SHELL            run SHELL if /etc/shells allows it
     --help     display this help and exit
     --version  output version information and exit

A mere - implies -l.   If USER not given, assume root.
but when try to run su with '--group', it says:
su: unrecognized option `--group'
Try `su --help' for more information.
