Thanks for responding - it was a great help.
Your comment give me a clue as to where to begin looking.
It appears some components required by hostapd weren't being built.
I am building on an amd64 system.
I had a look at the make file in /usr/src/usr.sbin/wpa/hostapd/Makefile and
found that adding the following to /etc/src.conf fixed my problem:
HOSTAPD_CFLAGS+=-DEAP_SERVER -DEAP_GTC -DEAP_AKA -DEAP_SIM -DEAP_GPSK
I haven't had a chance to narrow down exactly which one made the difference,
but I'm guessing it is the -DEAP_SERVER flag.
The only tunable I could find in /usr/src/tools/build/options was
WPA_SUPPLICANT_EAPOL, but this should only affect wpa_supplicant.
Does anyone know if there is a tunable I am missing in my src.conf file, or
should I be setting the HOSTAPD_CFLAGS directly as above.
