OK. As this thread has continued on quite a bit, I am going to summarise it 
for everyone.

--prefix does appear to work as expected and for most people should be 
specified as --prefix=/usr

However, raddb does NOT end up in the expected location, and even 
adding "--with-raddbdir=/etc/raddb" to configure (which in any case was 
previously not necessary) does not make it end up where it should.
