FreeBSD 6.2 + my gensnmptree issue

I am having an issue which is most likely my lack of understanding and
not a problem with 6.2 itself.
The system is running 6.2-RELEASE and I use bsnmpd. Here is the uname
FreeBSD lucky.orisit 6.2-RELEASE FreeBSD 6.2-RELEASE #0: Wed Oct 10
10:40:51 EDT 2007
What I am trying to do is get bsnmp to respond to new MIBs, specifically
After reading the manpages for bsnmp and gensnmptree I believe
gensnmptree is the command I need to use.
This is where I get into trouble. The gensnmptree command doesn't give
me any results no matter what I do. Even using a bug report example of
gensnmptree -e sysName gives me no results.
So I proceeded to do some more google searching and noticed gensnmpdef
was referenced several times as the program which may be what I need to use.
I found the code for this in /usr/src/contrib/bsnmp/gensnmpdef without a
makefile. There is no gensnmpdef in /usr/sbin on the system but it is
in the /usr/ports/net-mgt/bsnmpd/pkg-plist.
So I guess I need some guidance. Can I use gensnmptree to get this MIB
into the bsnmp system? If so how is this done? -or- Is there a problem
with the 6.2 release for gensnmpdef and that is in fact the program I am
suppose to be using?
Any assistance would be appreciated.
