I used the wpa_supplicant port on my laptop running 5.3, 5.4, and early 
6-CURRENT.  Worked like a hot damn, and let me finally use WPA-PSK 
(D-LINK DWL-G650 rev. b2, NetGEAR WG511T, built-in Atheros AR5212, 
connected to a D-LINK DWL DI 624 rev. c1) in Windows XP and FreeBSD.

Then wpa_supplicant was imported into the base for 6-CURRENT, and I just 
copied my conf file over to /etc, uninstalled the port, added WPA to 
the ifconfig line in rc.conf, and kept on trucking.

Maybe the wpa_supplicant port has been updated to the point it no longer 
works with 5.x, but there was a good 6 months there where I used it
