i was upgrading (a chunk of) my installed base of pkgs this weekend
was dismayed to find that ethereal depends on net-snmp whereas pchar
depends on ucd-snmp, and the two can't coexist.

i opted to to build ethereal as part of my bulk-build, and came back
to pchar later.  a quick tweak to the makefile shows that it can
happily build against net-snmp, and after a bit of testing, i can't
*see* any problems.

is there any reason not to switch pchar to net-snmp for real?
