I changed the commit message to

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
gnu: ktsuss: Use setuid "su" and "sudo" commands.

This has ktsudo actually gain root access.

* gnu/packages/admin.scm (ktsuss)[arguments]: Instead of <sudo>/bin/{su,sudo}
file names, use the setuid' verrsions.
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

When there is a fix being made, a short explanation is nice to have.
What was wrong that the file name were changed, what was fixed?

Also, we are (mainly) fixing the file names of SU and SUDO, not PATHs.

Renamed to 'patch-file-names'

Parameters inputs and outputs are both not used; I changed this to

+           (lambda _

No way!  :-)

I removed/did not apply this change.

Can you please remember to test a program before submitting it?  And I
mean not only check if "it runs", but also if it is actually useful?

Pushed to master with these changes.
