After doing a little research, I discovered that Windows Identity Foundation is built into Windows Server 2012 Release Candidate as an additional Feature that you can add via Server Manager.

After selecting Windows Identity Foundation 3.5 from the Add Roles and Features Wizard, I clicked Next and then Install.  Once the installation wizard completed I ran Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 Setup and this time Windows Identity Foundation passed the Install Required Components check.
