Correct. I managed to compile the test_wpa program using the following
instructions (not so easy in fact). However, I don't know how to move to
a full implementation of 802.11i IBSS from there (ie, connecting to real
"wext" backend and so on ... ). Suggestions are welcome.

Compiling test_wpa:
* I downloaded wpa_supplicant-0.6-2006-12-28.tar.gz and
* I uncompressed both and move hostap-0.6-2006-12-28 to
wpa_supplicant-0.6-2006-12-28/hostpad since both "libraries" are needed
to compile the test program
* Now, I discover that some functions/variables are redundant between
both libraries and that a common library could help (i created a "lib"
directory, just for the sake of compiling).
* As such, I patched "hostapd" and "wpa_supplicant" with the patches
attached to this mail.
* I then just did "make test_wpa"
* I run the resulting test_wpa (output is attached in test_wpa.txt as well).

Best regards,
PS: I can port those patches to the latest development releases if
needed to accept those patches in the main tree (or at least discuss
them, since i'm no expert here and some stuff have been hardcoded).
