I just got WPA authenticator working on FreeBSD yesterday.  Still a bunch more 
work but it's very close (supplicant basically falls out since much of the 
code is shared).  Unfortunately NetBSD's net80211 layer has diverged some and 
is lacking all the crypto changes to support WPA so it's going to be a bunch 
of work for someone...

This is with the Atheros driver.  Support for other drivers shouldn't be too
