I get this error too. It looks like line 102 in the spec file is
causing it :-


Should this line simply be :

%doc doc/*

This change allows the package to build on my system but when I try to
install the rpm I get the following message :-

error: Failed dependencies:
        /usr/local/bin/perl is needed by freeradius-1.1.3-0.i386
