Obstinity helps me :)

With this change in the Makefile, I can do a snmpwalk of the entire tree
in versions v1 and v2c, local and remote:
(using NetBSD-3.1/amd64/pkgsrc.tar.gz 2007 03 03/net-snmp-5.4)

.if ${OPSYS} == "NetBSD"
CONFIGURE_ARGS+=        --with-mib-modules="smux host"
#CONFIGURE_ARGS+=       --with-mib-modules="smux host ucd-snmp/diskio"
CONFIGURE_ARGS+=        --with-mib-modules="smux host"

Also, if I try work together freeradius-1.1.4 (with snmp option) and
net-snmp-5.4, the log file shows like all is all right:

host64 snmpd[508]: NET-SNMP version 5.4
host64 snmpd[508]: [smux_accept] accepted fd 11 from
host64 snmpd[508]: accepted smux peer: oid SNMPv2-SMI::enterprises.3317.1.3.1, descr radiusd

But snmpd dies (no die message) when I
host64# snmpwalk -v 2c -c private localhost radius

host64 snmpd[508]: Connection from UDP: []:65531
host64 snmpd[508]: [smux_snmp_process] peek failed: Resource temporarily unavailable
host64 snmpd[508]: peer disconnected: SNMPv2-SMI::enterprises.3317.1.3.1
host64 snmpd[508]: select: Bad file descriptor

This test works fine when I change disks. My second HD is identical except
the OS is i386 (i.e. all software versions and conf files are equal). No
need to remove the module ucd-snmp/diskio in net/net-snmp/Makefile.

I will install 4beta2 200703080002Z, I hope a better luck.
