Hi All,
  I read the previous posts and installed the talloclib and I do see the talloc.h under /usr/include.
I see that the library is correctly installed.
I set the PATH to reflect that in .bashrc. I also copied the talloc.h file under/usr/local/include too but it is
unable to find the talloc.h file.
When I execute
/freeradius-server$ sudo ./configure --with-talloc-include-dir="/usr/include"

I get the error :

configure: Setting additional developer CFLAGS
checking for the compiler flag "-Wdocumentation"... no

configure: error: FreeRADIUS requires libtalloc

Any suggestions how to fix this ?
