OK, will do.  We haven't really learned IOS yet; we've been doing
everything with the web interface.  (Mostly because we're just lazy, to
be honest. ;-) )

OK, I'll watch for that.

Hmm.  I wondered if I was ever going to have problems because I use LFS;
looks like I am now.  ;-)  Anyway, I'll look into those packages, to try
to figure out what they build and how they build it.  And I'll see if I
can replicate that here.  (Good thing I have a bit of experience doing
that; I've read ebuilds before, and they're not terribly difficult.)

Well, I wouldn't have to patch OpenSSL (we won't ever use EAP-FAST), and
I'm guessing I might be able to use the winpcap developer's pack instead
of building it.  But that's still some work to do.

I'll try to set that kind of environment up here, but if you release
0.4.5 before I get it going, I'll try that out first.

Thanks again!
