3.0.21 installed from source fails to parse /mods-config/files/authorize?

The config files radiusd used (including users file)  were in
usr/local/etc/radiusd/ directory.
But /etc/radiusd/ directory was also setup, and I was editing users file
there, which had no effect, of course.

Where radiusd directory is meant to be? And why I ended up having two
starting from vanilla source installation?

Thank you,
