Ubuntu FreeRadius does not recoginize some perl.so symbols and does not compile from source and is also outdated (Why is there no new version in SID? Is the package still maintained?)

Ok, so the issue here is it's outdated.  In head that issue is resolved. 

 You can of course 'make deb' in the top level directory of the current Git HEAD (which will very soon be 2.2.1) and make your own debian packages.

But yes, they should be updated to something recent. There are know security exploits in that version.
