Novell E-Directory

I've noticed in all the old documentation that it says to configure
FreeRADIUS with --with-edir to enable support for Novell. All of the
documentation for this that I've found is generally old and referencing FR
v1.x and not 2.x. On FreeBSD, in the ports system, the with-edir toggle
has been removed from the config options when building FR v2.x though it
is still something available in the older FR v1.x.

My question is, do I need to do anything special when building FR v2.x to
get support for the couple of e-directory options
(edir_account_policy_check come to mind) or if this just works out of the

If I do still need to configure --with-edir when compiling, does anyone
happen to know the syntax for FreeBSD to include it since it is no longer
a toggle option. (If it is required, I'll drop an e-mail on the maintainer
to see if it can be added again to make things simpler in the future.)

Thanks. :)
