This[1] mentions the nas package which is installed.  I am missing
something.  Why is wpa_supplicant not starting?  And why is there no
config file in /var/run?

I'm seeing this when runnning 'wifi':
wl0: invalid argument

Yeah I can't get it to do anything following usual instructions.
Let's start it manually.

Create /script/wpa_supplicant.conf and run
wpa_supplicant -B -iwl0 -c /script/wpa_supplicant.conf

So how does it work?  The config remnant I have on my system looks like this:

        psk=....  # looks like a hashed password

This is generated by "wpa_passphrase" in the old scripts I have..  So
maybe that's what's missing?
Can't find the wpa_passphrase application, so just generating the file on another host.

wpa_supplicant -Dwext -iwl0 -c/script/wpa_supplicant.pine.conf 

root@portage:/script# wpa_supplicant -dd -iwl0 -c/script/wpa_supplicant.pine.con
Successfully initialized wpa_supplicant
wl0: Associated with 01:80:c2:00:00:03

That is not right..

Maybe it is about this 'nas' thing[2].

Maybe sta mode is just not supported?

What a mess..
