Yes, same problem here. I already sent a patch to pkgsrc maintainer but no news.

You have to change one line in  agent/mibgroup/hardware/memory/memory_netbsd.c, line 42:

   unsigned int    bufspace;
   unsigned long int    bufspace;

And rebuild. This was needed for all my NetBSD-6.0/amd64 (even Xen domU). I have no other hardware to test this change..

Which version of net-snmp do you use? I'm using the one from pkgsrc 2012Q3 (net-snmp- and my memory_netbsd.c file is a bit different I think. There is no bufspace variable in it. The bufspace variable is present in memory_freebsd.c
