Which version of openssl are you using? It is possible that the Red Hat
7.3 comes with too old version as far as current wpa_supplicant is

Btw, since this is about testing EAP with RADIUS without an AP, you do
not probably want to be compiling wpa_supplicant. In order to build
eapol_test, you will need to add CONFIG_EAPOL_TEST=y into .config and
run 'make eapol_test'.
