Using cvsup to only update part of the ports tree is not recommended:
don't even think about grabbing anything other than 'ports-all'

The port has moved to net-mgmt/net-snmp

The old directory still exists only because there's a readme.html file
in it -- if you delete that and re-run cvsup, the old net/net-snmp
directory will be deleted completely.
