I just got round to looking at eradius and it looks very nice indeed. 
We have a RADIUS server, but I would describe it as a 1 week job - very 
targetted minimal implementation.

eradius has all the nice dictionary framework, packet encoding etc to 
build a nice generic server so looks to me an excellent starting point 
- most of the hard work has been done.
