I didn't use any RPM stuff, this is just standard FR install from source, (./configure ; make ; make install).then run with radiusd -X , so its using the bootstrap thats present in eap.conf

Not really an issue for me as I have real certs (and hopefully know what i'm doing ;) )  but the default install should just work (tm) for the new folk...

  Hmm... the "make install" process should probably make the fake
certificates.  The RPM scripts will then need to be modified to not
package those files.
