Download MYSQL with all its libraries e.g. i got MySQL 4.11. You are
missing with libraries, thats y this message is prompting U.
after downloading the libraries, Use following command

rpm -Uvh --nodeps MySQL-server-... .rpm (use ur server version at ...)
rpm -Uvh MySQL-share.....rpm (use the share version u got)
rpm -Uvh Mysql-client....rpm

then use # /etc/init.d/mysql start

Then compile freeradius and make again.Hope u wont get the message back.
