 I do recall from logs that Youxin had to do some extra things to patch
 wifi and wpa_supplicant.  Maybe something happened upstream to break this.
 This is the process I followed:

 1. Install Ubuntu 12.04 (per
 [https://source.android.com/setup/requirements#operating-system this doc])

 2. Get needed tools (per [https://source.android.com/setup/initializing
 #installing-required-packages-ubuntu-1204 this doc]):

  $ sudo apt-get install git gnupg flex bison gperf build-essential zip
 curl libc6-dev libncurses5-dev:i386 x11proto-core-dev libx11-dev:i386
 libreadline6-dev:i386 libgl1-mesa-glx:i386 libgl1-mesa-dev g++-multilib
 mingw32 tofrodos python-markdown libxml2-utils xsltproc zlib1g-dev:i386

 3. Followed the OLPC build process documented
 [http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Android/Building here] for Jellybean, but
 exceptionally I used the ''repo init'' line from the
 [http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Android/Lollipop%285.0%29 Lollipop build
 process].  I also skipped the ''Google Apps'' installation step.

 The `make -j8` command seems to make a lot of progress before falling over
 on the missing `wpa_ctrl.h`.  I think I read in a log somewhere that
 Youxin needed to patch either the wifi driver or wpa_supplicant from the
 Jellybean (4.3.1) build.  If that's indeed the issue, then it either
 should be patched in the repo, or the docs updated to include the patching
