Assuming the FR3 RPM behaves the same as the FR2 one, easiest way is to build with Mock rather than rpmbuild.

Quick overview - install the Mock packages, check the build environments available in Mock, then call mock as: 
  /usr/bin/mock -r <env>-<arch> freeradius.src.rpm

The build process takes a lot longer (Mock creates a clean build environment with *only* the dependancies and buildrequires specified in the makefile), but you get complete (and fully reproducible) builds.
