    +    <para>Guacamole supports delegating authentication to a RADIUS 
service, such as FreeRADIUS, to
    +        validate username and password combinations, and to support 
multi-factor authentication.  This
    +        authentication method must be layered on top of some other 
authentication extension, such as
    +        those available from the main project website, in order to provide 
access to actual
    +        connections.</para>

    +        <para>The RADIUS extension depends on software that is covered by 
a LGPL license, which is
    +            incompatible with the Apache 2.0 license under which Guacamole 
is licensed.  Due to this
    +            dependency, the Guacamole project cannot distribute binary 
versions of the RADIUS extension.
    +            If you want to use this extension you will need to build the 
code - or at least the RADIUS
    +            extension yourself.  Build instructions can be found in the 
section
    +            <xref linkend="installing-guacamole"/>.</para>

    +        <para>The RADIUS extension must be explicitly enabled during build 
time in order to generate
    +            the binaries and resulting JAR file.  This is done by adding 
the flag <option>-Plgpl-extensions</option>
    +            to the MAVEN command line during the build, and should result 
in the output below:</para>
