  Well... yes.  The path to raddb is hard-coded into the binary.  If
you're running it from the build directory, it doesn't really know that.

  The solution is "radiusd -Xd ./raddb -n debug"

  See raddb/debug.conf for a description of why "-n debug" helps.

  Yes.  The "-n debug" helps.

  Which isn't changed by a "make install"

  Yup.  I'll have to go fix that.  I don't normally install it for my
testing, so that might have slipped through the cracks.

  I think you're right.  I'll take a look.

  The PRLIBS stuff is there for Mac, which *does* require the binary to
be told where the libaries live.  <sigh> Like the dynamic linker can't
find libraries?
