debian/rules is what's actually building the package. If you do NOT run
that (or "dpkg-buildpackage -b"), then you haven't built any package.

Which probably means you downloaded the debs from somewhere else (a package
built for debian, perhaps?) which should explain the openssl error.

copy-pasting is safer, and would save lots of problems later on.
IIRC the "ippool-dhcp.conf" error was due to a default config bug, which
puts it enabled by default but put the file in another package. You could
probably just install freeradius-mysql (the one that you built, v2.2.0) to
fix that error. Or just comment out dhcp-related settings from radiusd.conf

Reading and following the advice given is the basics to solving a problem.

It should be, but to be honest I didn't remember whether I used the
official tarball, or clone from 2.2.5-git tag.
Note that if you ONLY want to use a prebuilt package, it shouldn't matter,
as you won't be downloading that file anyway.

Do you know how to use a ppa? If not, you might want to read

Something like

add-apt-repository ppa:freeradius/stable
apt-get update
apt-get install freeradius

( and if for whatever reason later you want to remove all traces of
packages from that ppa )

ppa-purge ppa:freeradius/stable
