Yes, there are built time options for quite a bit of configuration on
what exactly is built, including removal of WPA2 and EAP support.
Currently, these are much simpler for Makefile based builds, but similar
configuration can be done for visual studio builds, too, with some more
effort in figuring out what exactly the Makefile is doing..

wpa_supplicant does not include full support for WM5 in its current
version. Some commercial versions (e.g., DSA Supplicant from
Devicescape) have extended that to full support.
