Yes, the patches work best with the .tgz package:
- untar the release .tgz
- untar the patches on top of this
- then proceed with 'perl Makefile.PL' as described in the installation manual for the .tgz package.

While it's possible to replace files that were installed with rpm, I'd do it only when there's a specific need for it.

'rpm -Uvh Radiator-4.16-1.noarch.rpm' should be enough to upgrade if you do not need patches and want to stay with rpm packaging. If there's something in the patches you do need, then you could consider switching to .tgz + patches.

I'd say the current patches are not worth switching from rpm unless you want to try the RadSec Gossip features.
