Yes.  net-snmpd assumes you're using pkg(8).  If you're going to stick
with old pkg_tools, then you're also going to have to stick with old
net-snmpd.

Of you could just, you know, step into the modern age, become one with
the zeitgeist and switch to pkgng.  Don't dither too long though --
you've only got until September before the question becomes academic, as
that's when pkg_tools is being EoL'd.

	Cheers,

	Matthew
