Following up my own email, after further digging, it appears that  
this is
an MD5 related issue.

FreeRADIUS uses it's own MD5.c, based on public domain implementation  
from OpenBSD.
Client uses an MD5.c that is from RSA.

I seem to recall there being issues with this in the past, which is  
why FreeRADIUS
forces it's own MD5 to be used.

Is there any reason freeradius-client couldn't use the same MD5.c/h  
at FreeRADIUS?
