probably you install radius libraries in /usr/local/lib and
/usr/local/lib is not in you library path.

So, you must add /usr/local/lib to list of libraries  as adding one to
LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment directory or to system config.  (man for details).

Also note, that this is a general linux question, rather then radius-specific.
