It seems to me the bug is either in autoconf or in FreeBSD headers.
I don't know what could be done in FreeRADIUS to work around it.

You could possibly try:
1. Install the latest autoconf version and run a "make configure".
2. If it still doesn't work, try to use CFLAGS=-DHAVE_STRUCT_SOCKADDR_STORAGE
