I have re-installed, updated, installed freeradius. Freeradius-mysql,
mysql, mysql-devel. Created db, imported tables from examples in
/usr.share/doc/freradius/.../...sql as per docs. Created db user, edited
sql.conf file to match, uncommented sql in authorize and accounting
section of radius.conf, still get the following error:

ERROR: Cannot find a configuration entry for module "sql". 
radiusd.conf[1844] Unknown module "sql".
radiusd.conf[1773] Failed to parse authorize section.

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.
