Compiling hostapd from git with libnl also from git...

I've downloaded the latest from both git repositories. I'm able to
compile the libnl library (which would not be your problem anyways)
but when I try to compile the hostapd daemon I get the following

driver_nl80211.c: In function 'i802_init_sockets':
driver_nl80211.c:2036: warning: implicit declaration of function
driver_nl80211.c:2036: warning: assignment makes pointer from integer
without a cast
driver_nl80211.c:2047: error: too few arguments to function
driver_nl80211.c: In function 'i802_deinit':
driver_nl80211.c:2482: warning: implicit declaration of function
make: *** [driver_nl80211.o] Error 1

Now an "objdump" on the normal libnl libraries (normal meaning, what
came with my distro) show that these symbols exist. A search through
the libnl git code show's they don't exist. Is there a particular
version that I have download?
