You didn't searched at the right place :)
i find on the wiki :

my fast analyze :
* "set" commands seems deprecated
* the only time you need to use iwpriv is to set the 3 parameters required for 
WPA (AuthMode, EncrypType, WPAPSK)
* before set anything in interface, try commands manually

your  config must be something like :

iwconfig ra0 essid "Ayato"
iwconfig ra0 mode Managed

then re-write this part with new iwpriv syntax or at least valid it manually:

iwpriv ra0 set AuthMode=WPAPSK
iwpriv ra0 set EncrypType=TKIP
iwpriv ra0 set WPAPSK="<my key>"
