FreeRadius 1.1.0 definitely has it. Can't remember but I recall earlier 
versions having it too.

Using it in the exact manner you want will be tricky however, since the 
result of the LDAP URI searched for an xlat can only be a single entry, 
and only a single attribute of that entry.

There's a lot of funky stuff hidden away in the LDAP module, most of 
which I don't pretend to understand (e.g. profiles, default profiles, 
etc.) but you may be able to use that if you can't get the group thing 
to work directly.

To be honest though, dumping user->group mappings every N minutes and 
using rlm_passwd to put them into the request may be easier.
