There are "freeradius2" RPMs in the RHEL channels.

I suggest you either:

  a. Install one of those, or
  b. Download the .src.rpm for one of those, and re-use the .spec file

The problem seems to be that the .spec file is out of date and not 
naming all files, as is required.

I don't use the bundled .spec file, so haven't looked at it in years. We 
should probably just use the one that RedHat are using these days.
