See post: 

Problems  2:
Which of the following in .config file is  correct? The (1) or (2)?
My driver path is  /usr/src/madwifi-

(1) CFLAGS += -I/usr/src/madwifi-
(2) CFLAGS += -I../usr/src/madwifi-

Problems 3:
How to use  the hostapd command? Example, I want to start the daemon background, $hostapd -B  <configuration file(s)>.
What should I type for the file name?
