We recently patched our version of FreeRADIUS for fedora and RHEL6 to 
include the eerl fix from the 2.1.x git repo

You can get the fedora patch from here:

For CentOS 5.8 you'll need to grab the srpm for it, and edit that spec 
file to include the patch you find in the above fedora build.

Instructions on how to build an RPM from an SRPM can be found here:
