Problems installing SNMP from ports

I just installed SNMPD from ports not an hour ago on a system I built 
yesterday. No problems.

Now I try and install SNMP on another system that is running a non-PAE 
kernel, which I built a month ago, but on which almost everything is on 
the same version as the previous box. When I try and install net-snmp4 I 
get this:

+--( root at development )-(Fri, Feb 03 10:41 AM)-->
+-( /usr/ports/net-mgmt/net-snmp4 ):# make install

You may use the following build option(s):

        WITHOUT_SSL=yes   Disable the OpenSSL support.

*** Error code 2

Stop in /usr/ports/net-mgmt/net-snmp4.

I have WITHOUT_SSL=yes set in make.conf because I had seen another ML 
discussion from 2003 that mentioned there might be a problem there.

I just cvsup'd my ports tree immediately before running this command. 
I'm as up-to-date as one can possibly get :-)

Any help you can give here would be greatly appreciated. I'm trying to 
get this development box added into the monitors for this management 
software I'm trying out... ( ) My 
production box is already done, but I'd like to have development in 
there too.
