I looked at the messages posted to the "submit" group and I have seen nothing. Of course, I have looked at dfports at the beginning, but there is also nothing.

I would not mind doing the necessary changes to net-snmp, but the problem is that I have no idea about the roadmap envisioned for the userland headers by the DF developers, as I am not aware of any documentation about it and I do not remember seeing anything in the mail lists.

It is OK to clean up the headers, but when some functionality is removed, something else must be added to provide an alternate way to do the same thing. Moreover, some document must be written explaining how to convert the old ports to the new headers.

Or, you can run 'pkg_add -r net-snmp'.  I have it installed now, though I
haven't explicitly tested it.  Trying a package before the port is

Alas, that is not on option for me. I need to build net-snmp from sources, because I need to add the SO_BROADCAST option to the sockets used by it. I have a lot of networkimg devices that require broadcast SNMP packets but the maintainers of net-snmp have not foreseen this.

Best regards !
