what about defining a new user eg: radius01 with group radius
and running radiusd with this user account
so you can allowe all users to su into this account.

another way would be using sudo
within sudo you can define who is allowed to run special commands

a more bad way would be to set suid on radiusd an make it group/world

but all this is a bad idea, cause there is no need to run radius as root

so i would define a dedicated user account
