But that would not be CHAP.  I have written a tool called ntlm_auth to
allow arbitary external programs to use NTLM authentication.

FreeRadius just needs to be told how to use it.  I have told pppd how
to use ntlm_auth, see my paper at
http://hawkerc.net/staff/abartlet/comp3700 for the patch (which should serve as a good example).
