using wpa_supplicant without a configuration file

I would like to start wpa_supplicant without an existing configuration
file (commands for connection will follow later using wpa_cli).

Is that possible? 

It seems as if this requires some modifications to the source-code,
since the "wpa_supplicant_init" routine checks if no SSID was
configured, and if so, it exits with an error.

Is it possible to set it to "junk" ssid and therefore nothing will
happen on startup?

What I basically need is just to get the wpa_supplicant running and then
use wpa_cli to control it (set encryption/authentication/ssid etc)...
