I installed hostapd from sid directly onto lenny recently. No rebuilding
needed and it didn't pull in any other sid-only packages, I *think* (if
so only one - I was also installing a 2.6.32 kernel from sid). I've
been doing similar things with a Via Eden system recently, but so far
haven't been able to get the wireless working reliably :(
