It is not included in hostapd yet.

I think you only need the pae module in addition to a relatively new
hostapd. But I am not sure on this. Maybe Gunter will spot a light on

The pae makefiles are just modified original hostap makefiles. The most
important part is "$(MAKE) -C $(KERNEL_PATH) SUBDIRS=`pwd`/modules
modules" which builds the module for your kernel tree. KERNEL_PATH could
be set on commandline, e.g. with "make KERNEL_PATH="/usr/src/linux"" or by
setting this in the Makefile directly.
