The wiki page gives you the exact instructions to build your own
packages if you read past the first paragraph.

For Debian read Ubuntu, and vice-versa. They are essentially the
same as far as this is concerned.

When you follow the instructions on the wiki page to build the
packages it will pull in the dependencies for you.

So this should work:

git clone https://github.com/FreeRADIUS/freeradius-server.git
cd freeradius-server
git checkout release_3_0_12
git cherry-pick e5cce05

sudo apt-get install devscripts
fakeroot debian/rules clean
sudo mk-build-deps -ir debian/control
dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot -b -uc

I'll see if I can tidy the paragraph about package repositories.
It looks like it's just confusing things.
