I think you can run Radiusd in a chroot'ed environment, but I'm not sure
this will help, as radiusd doesn't access /etc/master.passwd directly.  You
may want to just go with the radius users file.

I do wonder though, if users don't have actual accounts on the system, how
do they change their passwords, get email, etc...
