Whoops, forgot to attach the .config for hostapd - it's attached to this 
mail.

# This file lists the configuration options that are used when building the

# just setting VARIABLE=n is not disabling that variable.
#
# This file is included in Makefile, so variables like CFLAGS and LIBS can also
# be modified from here. In most cass, these lines should use += in order not
