Ok what src files do you actually need, the debian package at least installs enough of the FreeRADIUS headers to be able to build modules.  I believe John Dennis was talking about creating a freeradius-devel package which does the same (for 3.0).

You don't need any more than that surely? Or is there some weird legal thing i'm missing about linking against the FreeRADIUS libraries?
