  There's an INSTALL file that is included with the software.  It
contains installation instructions.  They work on Linux, *BSD, Solaris,
and probably AIX.

  Perhaps you could try explaining *what* is so atrocious.  That might
give us an opportunity to fix it.  Instead, you've just said "you guys
suck", which isn't helpful.

  And what's so hard about installing it?

$ ./configure
$ make
$ make install
$ radiusd -X

  That's it.  After that, if you have OpenSSL installed, the following
authentication protocols will work:


  If it takes you days to figure something out, perhaps it would be
faster to ask questions on this list.

  Ask *DETAILED* questions.  Like "I'm trying to do X, and I expect Y to
happen, but instead Z happens".

95% identical.
