Hello again

Now it works ...

"Configuration":
  hostapd-0.4.1, wpa_supplicant-0.4.1
  madwifi-bsd-20050530
  openssl-0.9.7g

Notes:
hostapd-0.4.1
I had to change the .config file of hostapd  so it can find the crypto 
lib of ssl.
This seems strange but it is a real problem if you have 2 ssl 
installations!!
In fact this could be a problem for many peobles
because in wpa_supplicant you can configure which ssl should be used
and in hostapd there is no comment ...
In hostapd the crypto lib of the system (/usr/lib) was linked instead of 
the /usr/local/lib one.

It should be the same note in defconfig in hostapd like in wpa_supplicant.

# Uncomment following two lines and fix the paths if you have installed 
openssl
# in non-default location
#CFLAGS += -I/usr/local/openssl/include
#LIBS += -L/usr/local/openssl/lib

So I was able to use my NL-5354 MP PLUS ARIES2(F) 4G chipset AR5112
at both end client and ap to connect with WPA-PSK.

Only problem is that if the client disconnects the following errors from
driver_madwifi.c of hostapd are logged:

ioctl[IEE80211_IOCTL_DELKEY]: Invalied argument
ioctl[IEE80211_IOCTL_DELKEY]: Invalied argument
ioctl[IEE80211_IOCTL_SETMLME]: Invalied argument

Any idea?
