When someone searches e.g. http://www.google.com/search?q=freeradius+debian
the first result is building from source.
I think you really need to put a link to
http://packages.debian.org/freeradius right at the top of that section.
The text currently there says that building packages with dpkg-buildpackage
is "best", but it's actually now second best to installing working packages
from the official repositories.
Also, http://wiki.freeradius.org/Binary_packages is obsolete, but has
some content still, probably confusing to the users. It would be good for
this page to have an explicit pointer to http://freeradius.org/download.html
where there is a section Binary packages (maybe make a HTML anchor too).
2. That which causes joy or happiness.
