  You are not using the dictionaries that come with the server.
You've probably got a Gnu RADIUS dictionary installed in /etc/raddb.

  The "make install" output has a few lines at the end telling you
that it didn't over-write existing dictionaries, and what to do to fix
the problem.  Read that text.

  Also, ensure that FreeRADIUS is looking for it's configuration files
in a different directory than where the GNU radius configuration files
are located.  That will solve a lot of problems.
