src/eap_server/* files are for EAP server and they are linked into
hostapd if you are building a binary that integrates the EAP server
functionality. In addition to the build configuration, you would also
need to configure hostapd to actually use the internal EAP server
instead of forwarding the requests to an external authentication server
(eap_server=1 and related parameters in hostapd.conf).
