do what you did to build/install 2.2.0

before you 'make install' you should do a backup copy *just in case* eg
cp -R /usr/local/etc/raddb /usr/local/etc/raddb.backup

FreeRADIUS installer should not touch any files that already exist - 
however, note that this means some files (eg dictionary files) might not have newer
entries in..and any FreeRADIUS config files that use new features/expose new features
wont be seen in your config - so read/compare the new 2.2.5 src raddb entries to see what
you are missing out on :-)
