If you have checked out the ports tree you can do two


  # cd /usr/ports/security/wpa_supplicant
  # make config

2. (If checked out by Git)

 # cd /usr/ports
 # git blame security/wpa_supplicant/Makefile

 Sort this by date and do for every reference:

 # git log -n 1 4ef6747b

This will hopefully give you some information why the
port was created.
