FreeRadius uses threads by default, which is what I assume you're
seeing. I suspect the solaris/debian (ugh!) system is showing you each
thread as a distinct entry in the process list, whereas the linux/debian
is just showing one.
Linux 2.6 kernels show threaded processes as one thread by default. You
can use "ps auxm" to show the threads in this case - the "-" processes
after the main one are the threads. Does this show them?
Alternatively you've compiled them differently and the one on
linux/debian has threading disabled.
