Implemented rework for package "wpa_supplicant"

Found a first solution, as I compared the compilation-configuration with other systems (Void Linux, Alpine Linux, Gentoo). I deactivated the following line:

CONFIG_TLS_DEFAULT_CIPHERS="DEFAULT@SECLEVEL=1"

After another compilation wpa_supplicant is now functional as normal, but I'm quite unsure if this could be the final solution.

More from OpenBSD and ports-tree for wpa_supplicant, searching especially for the "default ciphers": https://github.com/openbsd/ports/tree/master/security/wpa_supplicant

When searching this line is especially mentioned from Debian, but we should be aware that Hyperbola and Debian are not for every part comparable - as Debian is using OpenSSL and Hyperbola keep up with LibreSSL, as more or less only system based on GNU/Linux (GNU/Linux-libre). All others have returned back to OpenSSL, reading more here: https://github.com/void-linux/void-packages/issues/20935

In general I think staying at LibreSSL is a good decision. So we should tryout different configurations also!
