FYI, the Fedora, RHEL & CentOS do *not* modify the upstream defaults.

The only minor exception to this is the fact the main freeradius rpm is 
not the "kitchen sink" of all possible FreeRADIUS components in the same 
way the upstream build produces, instead optional components are broken 
out into subpackages, for instance you won't get SQL support unless you 
install one of the SQL subpackages (e.g. freeradius-mysql, 
freeradius-postgresql, etc.) same holds true for ldap and all the other 
optional components.

% yum info freeradius\*

will show you all the possible packages.
