server status/statistics with 2.0.5 or retention_time for current freeradius

I am searching a solution to get status information with freeradius 2.0.5. 
Because of the broken snmp implemantation on 64 bit Linux systems, I can 
not use snmp. So I tried to use the status interface. I configured a 
server status as written below.

server status {
        listen {
                #  ONLY Status-Server is allowed to this port.
                #  ALL other packets are ignored.
                type = status

                ipaddr =
                port = 18120
        client admin {
                ipaddr =
                secret = adminsecret

        #  Simple authorize section.  The "Autz-Type Status-Server"
        #  section will work here, too.  See 
        authorize {
                # respond to the Status-Server request.

But the freeradius start fails:

Mon Nov 24 13:57:36 2008 : Error: 
/opt/radius/etc/raddb/sites-enabled/stats[31]:  Invalid type "status" in 
listen section.

Is there any idea to get status information ? I can not upgrade to 2.1.x 
because the rlm_ippool was rewritten and the retention_time patch (which I 
need) does not work.
