There has been a fair amount of confusion over how to get FreeRADIUS 
packages for Fedora, RHEL, and CentOS, how to perform a build if a 
pre-built package is not available, and how to do some basic maintenance 

So I've created a new FreeRADIUS wiki page with Red Hat specific 

If you discover the information is incomplete or in error please let me 
know and I'll update it.

I will reiterate what has been expressed in several recent threads, if 
you need to build and/or install FreeRADIUS for Fedora, RHEL, or CentOS 
your pain threshold will be greatly diminished if you use RPM's 
developed and distributed for Red Hat systems rather than trying to 
build from the raw source tarball. The reasons and procedures are 
hopefully sufficiently well explained in the FAQ (if not let me know and 
I'll fix it).
