Well, several things have happened which explain that:

    i) The port was moved from net/net-snmp to a new category 

   ii) The port was upgraded to version 5.1.1

It's not clear to me exactly what you're trying to install this port
-- but it doesn't sound like any of the recognised methods.  Chapter 4
of the handbook has the chapter and verse:

The ports section of the FreeBSD website was last updated on 26th
July, but that includes all of those changes.  Unless you have some
specific need for version 5.0.9, in which case, you'ld either have to
use the 'date' feature of cvsup(1) to check out an older version of
the ports tree, or hunt around the FTP sites for an old package.
