I have started with wpa_supplicant. It only needs two small changes
in wpa_supplicant-0.3.9 (see below) and some tweaks to the Makefile.
It depends on net/libdnet.

wpa_supplicant compiles, but I have not gotten it running fully
yet. It seems to authenticate fine, I can see traffic on the
interface with tcpdump, but I don't get a dhcp address. My
problem might just be a dhcp problem. I'm still investigating.
I can ping6 the IPv6 link local address of the router.

Also, I see some disconnects. I don't know why this happens.
