Build ideas

We can't distribute FreeRadius w/o GPL-ing our entire package. Anyway I 
don't think that's not particularly pertinent (I should not have 
mentioned it).

On a client's host I think I'm leaning towards installing the freeradius 
rpm, then during our install process, "layer in" the needed files (to 
build and install our module). That way we don't have to build out a 
entire radius instance on our build machines.

Any thought to including the necessary src files so folks can build 
their modules from a rpm distro?
