That's nice to hear!

Well, yes.. README did not say it explicitly, but TTLS (and any other
EAP method for that matter) required that CONFIG_IEEE8021X_EAPOL is also
set. I changed Makefile to set this automatically whenever any of the
EAP methods is included. This should take care of the compilation

The error message of unsupported method (if TTLS were not included in
config) should probably be handled bit more explicitly, too. At the
moment, configuration file is probably accepted, even if it specifies an
EAP method that is not built into the program. I'll probably change this
to fail at configuration load instead of during the authentication..
