For those really desperate to run snmpd on 64bit, there are some very crude
patches. Most likely not for the faint of hart, but everything compiles and runs
at my end.
They need more work to be integrated into the port, since I have not worked out
the int <> long <> pointer stuff. Which really creates issues here.

None the less, if you want:
Tell me if it breaks.
