 Requires wpa_supplicant-2.6 or newer built with CONFIG_MATCH_IFACE OR 
 NetBSD-8 which has that combo.

 Will fix that in the next import, along with an updated comment at the 
 top of 10-wpa_supplicant.

 I don't see this being a problem? It's still bundled as an example with 
 a stock dhcpcd install as there is no clue what wpa_suppliant if any is 
 installed or how it was built.
 I know this isn't an issue for NetBSD, but is the consensus that the 
 example file be removed? and 50-ypbind if MKYP=no?
