Hi Sergey, all,
@Sergey: I put you on the list of recipients since you provided the version bump to buildroot.
Since hostapd 2.10 the wpa_supplicant build ignores the two options CONFIG_BUILD_WPA_CLIENT_SO and CONFIG_NO_WPA_PASSPHRASE.
This leads to the following build error in buildroot when BR2_PACKAGE_WPA_SUPPLICANT_WPA_CLIENT_SO is selected:
/usr/bin/install: cannot stat '/buildroot/build/build/wpa_supplicant-2.10/wpa_supplicant/libwpa_client.so': No such file or directory
The Bug was probably introduced with commit  which reworked the .config parsing.
The two mentioned options are now evaluated before the .config file is parsed an thus ignored.
I'm not familiar enough with the wpa_supplicant build to come up with a proper patch. But maybe someone is willing to take a look at this.
