Well it is really both net-snmp and php5-snmp. They both depend on
libpkg.so.3 (with both pkg and pkg-devel provide).

# pkg rquery %B php5-snmp
# pkg rquery %B net-snmp

I believe it is randomly deciding to pull in pkg-devel to satisfy this
dependency. Keep trying to install php5-snmp a few times. It probably
will eventually let you, given it let you install net-snmp already.

There's no good fix or workaround for this. It is a bug in Pkg. If you
flip over to using pkg-devel it will just propose to flip back again.
