I have downloaded the zip file. After satisfying most of libraries in the Warning section, I was able to compile the code (3.0.16).
However, the $FREERADIUS/etc/raddb/policy.d/filter file seems to have some syntax problem:

                if (&User-Name =~ /\.\./ ) {
                        update request {
                                &Module-Failure-Message += 'Rejected: User-Name contains multiple ..s'

The older version has these code

       if (&User-Name =~ /\\.\\./ ) {
                update reply {
                        Reply-Message += "Rejected: Username contains ..s"

Actually, I was hit by this one while testing freeradius 3..0.13-8 on CentOS 7.4.1708 as well, I had to put \\.\\. back to be able to login into a test switch.

Shall I file a bug report somewhere?

Thank you.
