Which rpms for which distribution? Being specific makes it much easier
to answer questions.

If you're referring to Red Hat freeradius rpm's then yes you're correct,
there is no devel package with the 2.x series because the header files
are not multilib safe. I believe Arran has just recently corrected this
for the upcoming 3.0 release, if so then the 3.0 rpm's will include a
devel package.

Would you please explain the licensing concerns you have?
