Do you have a location where this alternative can be downloaded (at least we can document this, right?)

That way we can point at the Wiki when this question pops up again. :-)

Can you just make sure that when you build the official packages, that you don't build against packages that are not available in either CentOS/RHEL 7 or EPEL 7 repos? I had hoped to deploy the official 3.0.16 package but it wanted a package that doesn't exist in any of the repos in question.
      The main issue is that RH has decided to move from OpenSSL to NSS.  They've *partially* done the port.  So libldap links to NSS, but other applications such as FreeRADIUS don't.
      Trying to use libldap+NSS with FreeRADIUS+OpenSSL is a recipe for disaster.  NSS has an OpenSSL wrapper / compatibility layer.  So that layer ends up "stealing" the OpenSSL functions from FreeRADIUS, and then everything crashes.
      As a result, we need to have FR link to a version of libldap that uses OpenSSL.  Which RH doesn't distribute.
      If you're not using LDAP, this is mostly moot.
