I=92ve had a very close look and I=92m sure you are right.
I have two of these machines (one prod, one test) and they used to be =
i386 boxes way back in the past. They=92ve been virtual 64 bit systems =
for a while now. I didn=92t snapshot the virtual machine that I upgraded =
before the upgrade, so I compared it against my production machine. The =
reason that snmpd wasn=92t complaining on the production machine was =
because I wasn=92t running snmpd on it. I never have.
I=92m not sure it=92s worth trying to catch this problem. Switching from =
i386 to amd64 is so easy that nobody is ever going to read any =
documentation and in my case, the conversion was many years in the past. =
If there is an easy way to put something in postinstall, then sure, but =
I won=92t complain if this PR is close with =93user error=94.
