[isf-wifidog] Unable to get global $db

I am trying to install the auth server on a FreeBSD 6-STABLE box but it 
seems that any PHP code depending on the line

global $db

doesn't work.

Going through the install.php, all tests and setups that connect directly 
to the database from that page works but as soon as a submodule of class is 
called, no connection. The only error message I get is

Warning: Module 'radius' already loaded in Unknown on line 0

as the page try to load the radius dll explicitly and thus the other Radius 
dependent tests fail. Changing this to try and call a radius function, the 
error message goes away and everything works up until database 
initialisation where we find that we need to update from version 29 to 31. 
After converting the php-stuff to SQL and manually updating to version 31, 
we can continue to Administration account which once again fail with 
database access error.

Going through the code, $db is not initialised in either of these cases but 
I as the modules where this should happen are included I can't see whats 
wrong here.

Any ideas?
