No, you don't need to manually edit #define's.

For the out-of-the-kernel hostap driver, you did this. But now as the driver 
is in the kernel, you use the normal kernel configuration tool: simply do 
"make menuconfig" or "make xconfig" and turn the option on. Then recompile 
and reinstall the usual way. There are many many web pages about this 
compile-your-own-kernel approach, surely you'll find one.

If you prefer to install pre-packaged already-compiled kernels, then your 
vendor (in this case the Debian Project) should have enabled this kernel 
configuration. If they didn't, then please file a bug.
