License: not specified in port


wpa_supplicant is a client (supplicant) with support for WPA and WPA2
(IEEE 802.11i / RSN). It is suitable for both desktop/laptop computers and
embedded systems. Supplicant is the IEEE 802.1X/WPA component that is used
in the client stations. It implements key negotiation with a WPA
Authenticator and it controls the roaming and IEEE 802.11 authentication/
association of the wlan driver.

wpa_supplicant is designed to be a "daemon" program that runs in the
background and acts as the backend component controlling the wireless
connection. wpa_supplicant supports separate frontend programs and a
text-based frontend (wpa_cli) and a GUI (wpa_gui) are included with
wpa_supplicant.

security/wpa_supplicant: Fix build on FreeBSD 11

On FreeBSD 11, the wpa_supplicant couldn't find the readline headers.
It turns out that Mk/Uses/readline.mk only augments LDFLAGS and CPPFLAGS,
but wpa_supplicant needs -I${LOCALBASE}/include add to CFLAGS.  To fix
FreeBSD build, augment CFLAGS with value of CPPFLAGS in the makefile.

This wasn't an issue on DragonFly.  Apparently wpa_supplicant found the
readline compatibility headers of libedit and used those instead.

security/wpa_supplicant: Bring in BSD driver fix from DragonFly BSD

DragonFly adopted it's "new" IEEE 802.11 infrastructure from FreeBSD.
This introduced an additional isr_meshid_len field in the
ieee80211req_scan_result structure.  It is necessary to include this
additional offset when calculating the address of the IE data buffer.

Imre Vadasz introduced this fix to DragonFly on 01 Sept 2014, but a
similar fix doesn't appear to be present in FreeBSD's base wpa_supplicant.

wpa/supplicant: Fix driver list with NDIS, take 2

It turns out the driver list was only showing "null" for NDIS when -h
(help) or an unknown switch was passed to wpa_supplicant.  The cause is
that the NDIS driver is the only that that has to be initialized, and
the initialization wasn't occurring in the above case.

The fix is the move the NDIS driver initialization before the command
switches are examined in case wpa_supplicant aborts to usage early.

security/wpa_supplicant: Fix NDIS driver, privsep no longer default

The NDIS driver didn't build when privsep option was turned off.  Moveover,
it didn't display the driver name correctly, so I figured out a patch
based on base's ndis driver code.  Thirdly, when privsep option is turned
off, wpa_priv is not built, so let's handle that condition.

Finally, remove privsep from default options because it removes the
standard list of drivers and replaces it with privsep driver.

Revive security/wpa_supplicant after 6.5 years => version 2.3

This port was retired at version 0.3.8 because wpa_supplicant is
part of FreeBSD base.  However, the last few releases have had a period
of only a few months, so the base is always going to be behind.  DragonFly
is also affected, so I'm bringing the port back at the latest version.

It features the same patches as FreeBSD including the conversion to use
libutil's pidfile routines.  There are some additional patches for
DragonFly support and to fix some bugs from the 9 Oct 2014 release.

The WPA Supplicant build system has been converted to ports options, and
there are dozens of them.  I've set the defaults to match the
configuration in base and verified that it builds with all options
selected at once.

Add a new variable WITH_STATIC_SUPPLICANT to cause wpa_supplicant to be
linked staticly.  This allows it to be used from devd at startup. [1]

Use LIB_DEPENDS instead of BUILD_DEPENDS for the libdnet depend since we
need it to run too. [2]

My changes differ from the submitted fixes.

Fix wpa_cli.  You need to pass all of the sockaddr, not just part of it.
Also be sure to keep the path null terminated as Stevens does.

While I'm here, take maintainership since I use this and seem to be
making most of the recent commits.
