I added "CONFIG_DEBUG_FILE=y" and removed "CONFIG_NO_STDOUT_DEBUG=y"
in the .config before Portage built hostapd, and it just started
working fine! There were no errors at all, and the AP is working
(tested from my TouchPad). Is there some reason I should need
CONFIG_DEBUG_FILE for hostapd to work?

Thanks for your time,
