Unfortunately, at the current time, the FR wiki Debian pages are a
bit messed up. All the stuff I rewrote earlier in the year with
up-to-date instruction is lost AFAICT.

I'm hoping to rewrite the page again at some point soon but, as
always, time...

For the time being, something like this should suffice:

  sudo apt-get install git-core dpkg-dev
  git clone git://
  cd freeradius-server/
  git checkout release_3_0_11
  # apt-get install any required packages from above
  dpkg-buildpackage -us -uc -rfakeroot
