hostapd-0.6.4 compiles, the git version too, and links against the
current libnl that I simply downloaded from the official page. What
errors did you get ?
I've had compilation troubles on the libnl git version (some files like
libnl-2.0.pc did not exist, but I'm completely new to git: I may have
missed smthing), but compilation of hostapd fails (some prototypes do
driver_nl80211.c:2002: error: too few arguments to function
driver_nl80211.c:2002: warning: assignment makes pointer from integer
without a cast
