Sorry, it took a while for me to get to this. Got version 1.1.3
from CVS today and ran rpmbuild on Redhat Enterprise Linux 4
(Update 3). Builds OK - very good, and the default setting Nicolas
inserted into the spec file for "with-docdir" is fine.

One residual issue though (a fix for which I had as part of the
patch I had originally submitted to this list) is that
/usr/share/doc/freeradius-1.1.3/ gets only "ChangeLog  COPYRIGHT
INSTALL  README  todo/". Unless the remining required files in the
doc directory are inserted into the redhat spec file as I had done
in the patch, those doc files will not (and do not) get copied in.
A better fix would be to rename the files that should be copied
into the RPM (or into an installation on any other distro) to have
a standard prefix (say "doc-" for want of anything better) from the
doc directory. In that case, having the line "%doc doc/doc* todo/
COPYRIGHT INSTALL" in the spec file in the %files section will
install everything required. What do you think?
