Currently you've got:

Patch0: freeradius-exclude-config-file.patch
Patch1: freeradius-dhcp_sqlippool.patch

I don't think you need the freeradius-exclude-config-file.patch because
Alan D. fixed that issue. That patch is actually from the FR git repo.
I'm surprised it applied, it should either already be in 3.0 or 3.0
implements the same thing differently. FWIW the patch is to exclude
certain well known files from being read as config files. Did 3.0 move
to reading only config files with a specific extension?

The freeradius-dhcp_sqlippool.patch is probably still needed because the
file being referenced only exists in an optional sub-package, which if
isn't installed will (or used to) cause an error.
