There's no ut_xtime in struct utmpx. Why is this a problem?

This is because you're using net-snmp in ucd-snmp compatibility
mode, and that is not supported in stock 1.0.4. You can try this
although be warned that if your net-snmp is not configured exactly
the same as your FreeRADIUS, you _will_ get nasty nasty problems. I
believe these problems were first observed on a RedHat system, which
ships a net-snmp package which doesn't neccessarily match the defines
you need to build FreeRADIUS.

Your other choice is to upgrade to CVS HEAD, but that may not be in
working condition right now. (Someone mentioned a proxying problem
