yes, just verified it again to be sure ...

hmm, -DNDEBUG _is_ there after "./configure" ..
i played a bit with the settings (as i am not an experienced developper), even
tried all the -W flags, but with no effect.

but it seems i pointed in the complete wrong direction and oversaw some other
difference (sorry for the misdirection), as there is another difference in

   the freeradius-1.1.3.tar.gz uses "INSTALLSTRIP = -s"
   whereas the cvs versions use "INSTALLSTRIP = "

so after changing (removal of "-s") and a new "sudo make install" freeradius
starts up successfully and works! i think "-s" tells libtool to strip of debug
information? but it does work on linux (just tested on sles10).
