[PATCH] wpa_supplicant/Makefile: use $(LIBS) with wpa_passphrase

wpa_passphrase requires libcrypto from OpenSSL.  User can set an
alternative path to OpenSSL libraries by defining LIBS at the top of
.config but if $(LIBS) is not actually used wrong libcrypto is used or
compilation fails if there is no libcrypto in the default locations cc
is looking for it.  It's especially bad for cross-compilers that fail
with 'cannot find -lcrypto' message.
