Who is taking care of re-transmitting packets in this case? RADIUS
server doesn't do it, so something in the authenticator would need to do
it. Is that handled by something in IKEv2?

Hmm.. This does not seem to include RADIUS authentication client. Is
that on purpose?

I'm not completely sure I understood all the details, so I don't have a
an answer to this at this point. In general, the Makefiles looked fine,
but some more details would be needed to fully understand the design.
