A lot of sources packages have a "make uninstall" as well as "make install"

You can use checkinstall to uninstall FreeRADIUS.

http://www.asic-linux.com.mx/~izto/checkinstall/

What you do is use checkinstall to install FreeRADIUS a second time from freeradius-server-2.0.2.tar.gz. You use the commands:

./configure
make
checkinstall

checkinstall will create a deb or rpm package for you. You then install the deb or rpm package and then uninstall it.

Checkinstall is not working, it gives a lot of errors if make is trying to chmod files.

But it is possible to redirect the installation to a other directory (same as DESTDIR=/work/freeradius-server-2.0.4/builds) using:
make install R=/work/freeradius-server-2.0.4/builds

Then it should be possible to make a package, install this package and remove the package again.

Code:
/work/freeradius-server-2.0.4/builds# tree -L 2
.
