I just tried building 1.1.6 as an rpm on suse, it fails with this error.

[root at localhost src]# rpmbuild -ba /usr/src/packages/SPECS/freeradius.spec
error: File /usr/src/redhat/SOURCES/freeradius-1.1.5.tar.gz: No such
file or directory

This is corrected instructions

* The wiki glosses over a little and gives u an incorrect dir
* the spec file expects 1.1.5 tar.gz

# cd /usr/src
# tar zxvf /root/Desktop/freeradius-1.1.6.tar.gz
# cp /root/Desktop/freeradius-1.1.6.tar.gz
# cp freeradius-1.1.6/suse/freeradius.spec  /usr/src/redhat/SPECS/
# rpmbuild -ba /usr/src/redhat/SPECS/freeradius.spec
