  Print the actual error message:

                printf( "radclient: received bad packet: %s\n",strerror(errno));

  This is wrong.  You should use fr_strerror(), which returns a descriptive message.  strerror() is for getting errors from system calls / system libraries.  We use our own error wrapper.
