    WPA Supplicant: Add warning about its use
    The wpa_supplicant software in base is three releases behind and likely
    full of security holes.  For example, the current release in DPorts has
    already had 5 security vulnerabilities patched, but the base version is
    not being actively maintained.
    The base wpa_supplicant should only be used long enough to be able to
    install the latest version from dports.  In order to let sysadmins know
    that running it is not the best idea, a 10-second warning will come up
    when the base wpa_supplicant is used.
