What do you mean, we don't share the source?

The Jenkinsfiles and Dockerfiles used to build it are all in the 
FreeRADIUS source repository on github, right alongside the source to 
the software itself. Can't get much more open than that.

To build the packages it essentially does "make deb", or "make rpm" in 
the source tree. See

It looks like the TDS libraries might not be included in the package 
dependencies, so it's likely nobody is building packages with support 
for it. Which probably goes to show how many people are using MS SQL 
server with FreeRADIUS.

Easiest is to build on your own machine. Make sure freetds-dev etc 
packages are installed and then build from source.
