Experiments so far to build an interim driver to support hostAP mode on NetBSD 1.6 have been unsucessful _ since every part of netbsd depends on every other part being a specific version, keeping up with netbsd-current, especially to enable just one driver, is pretty impractical. I might just play with hacks to ad-hoc mode on the sparc until next month, when it appears [OpenBSD 3.2 will be out]. OpenBSD already has hostAP support, but what it was missing was a working "nell" driver for the sbus to pcmcia bridge that holds the 802.11 card. HOPEFULLY OpenBSD 3.2 for Sparc will work with a 802.11 card in the nell, and it will be cool, ok?
