Not sure what you did.  There are roughly two ways:

-  Just use the RPMs from CentOS, install via yum, do not build
   anything yourself.  Note that this is an old (1.1.3) version of
   FreeRADIUS, whicht might or work not ok for you.

-  Build a newer version.  I personally recommend strongly to use
   a recent Fedora src.rpm for that, as these RPMs are "compatible"
   (or integrated, or whatever you want to call it) with RHEL/Fedora
   distros (F9 has 2.0.2, F10 had 2.1.1).

   After you've build the RPMs, you can still install these with
   yum (yum --nogpgcheck your.rpm ...) to solve dependencies.
