If you're building for CentOS and RHEL, I would advise using the official SPEC from RHEL (visit git:// for it). This is what Nick and before him John worked from, and which I also pull from. There are several patches that are applied on RHEL specifically.

Arran, Alan D, perhaps we should merge some of those bits back. I can send over a pull request on Tuesday when I'm back in the office.

Would love to see some freely available RPMs of the latest version of FreeRadius.

I finally have a chance to test opensuse's build service for freeradius, and it's pretty cool :)
It also supports granting permission to manage a project to other users (similar to what ubuntu ppa does)

Two fixes needed for the build (pull request submitted on github). Resulting centos RPMs from the test:

Now if only someone has the time to:
- manage the builds
- add other distros, especially RPM-based one (e.g. no packages for *suse so far)
- manage the "freeradius" account on opensuse's build service
