First: Thank you for doing this, Cy. I am now (also) running wpa_supplicant-2.6_2 successfully on my laptop (when it's running stable/11). I did have one mild surprise: I had rebooted my laptop to verify that the ports version of wpa_supplicant would work, and as the screen went dark, I recalled that I had failed to copy /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf to /usr/local/etc -- but my concern proved to be unfounded: the wpa_supplicant.conf in /etc/ was used (successfully). Question: Should one expect a wpa_supplicant-2.6_2 executable built under FreeBSD stable/11 (amd64) to work on the same hardware, but running head? For reasons that are (at best) tangential to this topic, I track, build, and smoke-test both stable/11 and head daily, but only build the ports (daily) under (the just-built/booted) stable/11 -- depending on misc/compat11 to handle things as necessary for head. This works (well, IMO)... except that when I had configured my "head slice" to use the ports version of wpa_supplicant, the latter was apparently not happy: ...

The laptop spends the vast bulk of its time running stable/11, so the threat is somewhat mitigated.... Peace, david -- David H.
