Note that eapol_test/hostapd/wpa_supplicant does not support OpenSSL 3.0.0.
I needed to build it against OpenSSL 1.1.x in our CI to get our tests functional
when I fixed  FreeRADIUS master to work with OpenSSL 3.0.0.

There was nothing from the work that I did that would suggest that OpenSSL 3.0.0
would not work with FreeRADIUS 3.  Most of the fixes were swapping away
from deprecated low level APIs to the EVP API.

Have you tried building eapol_test/wpa_supplicant with an older version of OpenSSL?
