+1 for keeping wpa_supplicant out of the base group.

And just a general reminder, because it fits into this discussion:

"Before complaining about missing (make) dependencies, remember that the
base group is assumed to be installed on all Arch Linux systems. The
group "base-devel" is assumed to be installed when building with makepkg
or when using AUR helpers." [1]
