Or it could be that the execute bit (+x) is not present on install-sh

However it is present on my local git checkout:

$ ls -l install-sh
-rwxr-xr-x  1 brian  staff  5615  6 Oct 19:11 install-sh

And I've checked the published tarball at

$ tar -tvzf freeradius-server-3.0.12.tar.gz | grep install-sh
-rwxrwxr-x  0 root   root     5615 29 Sep 16:19 

The OP needs to check how their own source tree was unpacked.
