So the custom module is in an RPM?

If yes, it should be easier for you to take latest RH's SRPM, then modify
the SPEC file to add and compile your module, and then split it as a new
package (e.g. freeradius-billmax). Then you distribute only the RPM for
your module.

Did you try:
- ldd /usr/lib64/freeradius/
- verify that all other FR modules are also in the same place (i.e.
/usr/lib64/freeradius) ?
