Wimax module with Freeradius 2.1.8 on Ubuntu

Actually I have seen this issue on Ubuntu myself.  In the source code there is a file which references "stable" modules.  I found it necessary to edit that file and add rlm_wimax in order to have the wimax module compiled.

  See doc/bugs

  My guess is that you have multiple versions of the server installed.
Fix that.

  So... what does the configure / make output say?  It's *not* hard to
read it.  There's a lot of text, but looking for "wimax" should narrow
it down to 30-40 lines, which are easy to understand.
