frascend in the 1.0.4 ebuild seems to behave the same way as in my
freeradius 0.9.0 ebuilds. I don't see that they changed the meaning of
that use flag from my submitted ebuild over the 1.0.X versions to the
1.0.4 version.

The defualt behavior is and was to only compile with-ascend-binary if
the frascend use flag is present.
