do the dictionary files go where you expect?  I recall having a small battle with 
./configure myself a short time back 1.1.2, eg with

./configure  --prefix=/ --exec-prefix=/usr --enable-ltdl-install --with-experimental-modules --with-large-files

I can demonstrate the result with the first few lines of  make -n install

/usr/src/freeradius-1.1.2/install-sh -c -d -m 755  /usr/sbin
/usr/src/freeradius-1.1.2/install-sh -c -d -m 755  /usr/bin
/usr/src/freeradius-1.1.2/install-sh -c -d -m 755  //etc/raddb
/usr/src/freeradius-1.1.2/install-sh -c -d -m 755  //man
/usr/src/freeradius-1.1.2/install-sh -c -d -m 755  //var/run/radiusd
/usr/src/freeradius-1.1.2/install-sh -c -d -m 700  //var/log/radius
/usr/src/freeradius-1.1.2/install-sh -c -d -m 700  //var/log/radius/radacct
/usr/src/freeradius-1.1.2/install-sh -c -d -m 755  //share
/usr/src/freeradius-1.1.2/install-sh -c -d -m 755  //share/freeradius

note the munging of the path - of course, its only doing what I'm telling it but
istr that evrything used to go into /usr/share originally
