I 've followed the faq instructions and I have now  the following packages

freeradius-2.1.1-7.x86_64.rpm        freeradius-perl-2.1.1-7.x86_64.rpm
freeradius-krb5-2.1.1-7.x86_64.rpm   freeradius-python-2.1.1-7.x86_64.rpm
freeradius-ldap-2.1.1-7.x86_64.rpm   freeradius-unixODBC-2.1.1-7.x86_64.rpm
freeradius-libs-2.1.1-7.x86_64.rpm   freeradius-utils-2.1.1-7.x86_64.rpm

When trying to install

 rpm -ivh freeradius-2.1.1-7.x86_64.rpm 
error: Failed dependencies: is needed by
freeradius-2.1.1-7.x86_64 is needed by

Shouldn't these libs be included in the package ?
