Hello,

usb-nsmp has been superceeded by net-snmp for quite a while now.
ucd-snmp is unmaintained. Is there any good reason why we should
continue to support both, ucd-snmp and net-snmp?

Supporting both versions is causing troube time and again during
configure phase, the latest one being:
http://bugs.wireshark.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=1218

Ciao

PS: IIRC, the only reason why we are using xxx-snmp at all is the
oid to string functionality. Also, xxx-snmp cannoted be enabled in
packages on those systems that consider openssl not a system library.
Is there any other lib/tool that does provide that functionality and
doesn not have problems with the GPLv2?

We are stuck with technology when what we really want is just stuff that
works. Some say that should read Microsoft instead of technology.
