Version 2.7 of wpa_supplicant has been modified to support OpenSSL 1.1.1, as the changelog at says.
However, the PKGBUILD still requires openssl-1.0 and uses custom CFLAGS and LDFLAGS (actually, LIBS) to ensure that the package is built against the 1.0 version of OpenSSL. I've built the supplicant with the newest OpenSSL and have been running it for a few days now without any issues.
This may be a good time to switch to 1.1.1 in the PKGBUILD as well, especially since it was the last package on my system that depended on OpenSSL 1.0.
This task depends upon
