As it is said here:

you should:

- cd /usr/local/src
- wget
- tar xzf freeradius-1.1.2.tar.gz
- cd freeradius-1.1.2
- fakeroot dpkg-buildpackage -b -uc
- it will fail, complaining about missing dependencies
- apt-get install debhelper dpatch autotools-dev libltdl3-dev libpam0g-dev libmysqlclient12-dev libgdbm-dev libldap2-dev libsasl2-dev libiodbc2-dev libkrb5-dev libperl-dev snmp libsnmp5-dev postgresql-dev libssl-dev (you don't need them all, you might want to remove some of them, but you'll have to edit debian/rules to remove the unwanted modules)
- fakeroot dpkg-buildpackage -b -uc
- cd ..

Building all the modules will give:


make your choice and dpkg -i the wanted debs.

You'll get all the conf files into /etc/freeradius/
