What exact error message did you get?

radtest is just a shell script. When you pass -t eap-md5 it does this:

                                 if [ ! -x "$radeapclient" ]
                                     echo "radtest: No 'radeapclient' 
program was found.  Cannot perform EAP-MD5." >&1
                                     exit 1

If you got the error message "No 'radeapclient' program was found" then 
there's your answer. As far as I can see, radeapclient is still in 
v3.1.x, so maybe it didn't get built (e.g. you were missing some dev 
library at the time you built it), or it wasn't installed by "make 
install", or it's in the wrong location (check the radtest script for 

If you got some other error message, then let us see it.
