EAP-TLS would mean linking against openssl. Since freeradius is GPL, you can't link against openssl (which has another licence) without exeption rule in freeradius (this is the consensus from Debian legal). This is the same reason why there is no freeradius-postgres package. Postgresql is linked against openssl which would mean that freeradius would pull in openssl through Postgresql which is a no no.

If someone would write a patch for freeradius for linking againts GnuTLS instead of openssl, you would get eap-tls support.

Shade and sweet water!
