freeradius2 port with e-dir

Around 3 weeks ago, I had asked on the list about how to compile 
FreeRADIUS 2 with support for e-directory. I had been hoping to get an 
answer back by now from someone with a success story of using FreeRADIUS
on FreeBSD with Novell E-Directory for a backend. With the (very) old 
freeradius1 port, there is a toggle in options for e-dir support, but
is missing in the freeradius2 port.

It was verified by the FreeRADIUS mailing list that support for 
E-Directory needs to be compiled in. I've not had a chance to set up the 
new server yet, but that should be happening in the next week or two.
the imminent release of 2.1.10, I may just set the rest of the server up 
and wait for that to install FreeRADIUS.

I tried looking through the Makefile but I didn't find any reference to 
edir there. Would it be possible to add the E-Directory option back or
least provide the option within the Makefile even if not available from 
make config? (Or just tell me I'm an idiot and show me what I missed
gets it to build with e-dir support. ;))

Thanks in advance.
