Not at all. I just haven't had time to sweep through pkgsrc and switch
packages that need ucd-snmp to use net-snmp instead. The net-snmp
buildlink2.mk file has some smarts for using the ucd-snmp-compatibility
headers and libraries. I think most packages that use ucd-snmp should
work if you do:
in place of including the ucd-snmp/buildlink2.mk file.
