dh_installpam is from the debhelper package.  The "name" option was
added in debhelper 4.1.68:

debhelper (4.1.68) unstable; urgency=low
  * dh_installmodules, dh_installpam, dh_installcron, dh_installinit,
    dh_installogrotate: add --name= option, that can be used to specify
    the name to use for the file(s) installed by these commands. For example,
    dh_installcron --name=foo will install debian/package.foo.cron.daily to
    etc/cron.daily/foo. Closes: #138202, #101003, #68545, #148844

You can either update your debhelper or copy the file manually to
$(DESTDIR)etc/pam.d/radiusd with cp in debian/rules.
