  OK... that's 2.1.12.

  Which is 2.2.0.  So you have SOMEHOW managed to get radclient from
2.2.0, while installing everything else from 2.1.12.

  This does NOT happen on the default install.  It does NOT happen for
other peoples systems.  It is something YOU did.

  Delete the radclient binary, and re-install.

  But really, this isn't a RADIUS problem.  This is a system
administration problem.
