That looks fine.  raddb, scripts, doc, etcetera aren't compiled, so it
looks like it ran to completion.

Harmless (mostly).  This is only a problem if you don't have that
directory in your library search path, but it seems you do.

Did rlm_exec actually get built and installed?

Can you try 1.1.3 (in CVS right now, due Any Day Now) and see if it does
better?  There was a substantial build system rework involved.

Take care,
