Yes, strange, isn't it ?
Especially since this is a brand new system not even connected to the internet 
(I mean, there can't be any rootkit or so...).

Pfuhh, why didn't I do this before, what an idiot...
I can't reach the server right now, so I'll post the output as soon as I get 
to the box...

Yes, I've seen all those google posts before asking here, BUT:
- I compiled net-snmp from the ports collection
- the latest port is from January 2nd, so I guess someone would have caught 
this problem before me if it was specifically FreeBSD/port related.

Obviously, there's something wrong on my box...
I'll try to give more information soon.
