Can you please elaborate more on which driver changes you are it specific to MacOS?

Also for Windows Vista/7 build, I saw some earlier issues for NDIS
driver. Can you please let me know if those are sorted out and we can
build wpa_supplicant successfully on windows vista and 7.

It may build, but I do not think it works on 10.5 (or 10.6 for that
matter) because of changes in the driver interface.
