Perhaps the real question is why. These days the concept of having to
build software for a particular OS just because that's the installed OS
has largely disappeared. We now live in a world of virtual machines. If
you happen to have a windows box but want to run FreeRADIUS on it then
the path of least resistance is to simply spin up a Linux VM on your
Windows box and run FreeRADIUS in the Linux VM where it will run in it's
own familiar environment quite happily blissfully unaware it's being
hosted on Windows.
