net-snmp won't compile here:
/usr/bin/ld: /usr/local/lib/perl5/5.6.1/mach/CORE/libperl.a(perl.o): 
relocation R_X86_64_32S can not be used when making a shared object; 
recompile with -fPIC
/usr/local/lib/perl5/5.6.1/mach/CORE/libperl.a: could not read symbols: 
Bad value
*** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/ports/net-mgmt/net-snmp/work/net-snmp-5.1.1/perl/agent.

If I try net-snmp4, it compiles, but the daemon dies whenever it's 
queried (by mrtg, for example).
