Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Telligent Community combines blogs, wikis, forums, and file-sharing capabilities into a single product with single sign-on, using all Microsoft technologies. Is there an equivalent offering that runs on Unix/Linux? Or would I have to pick and choose individual product offerings and figure out another option for single sign-on across them? Are there plug-ins for something like WordPress or MovableType that might add the necessary functionality?

A friend of mine is looking to add a "members-only" area to her company's website, and since they're hosted on Dreamhost (and can't afford StackExchange pricing yet), I'm trying to find other options for them.

There are plenty of commercial platforms which compete in this space, but I think you'll find they're all pretty spendy.

My recommendation would be to check out Drupal (http://drupal.org)

Based on the information in your question, I think that platform would likely meet your needs. It also has a pretty vibrant development community, so there are plenty of plug-ins available to extend its capabilities.
