If I recall correctly, a number of header files were split between
kernel-specific and userland areas.  FreeBSD, which the port is designed
for, hasn't been cleaned up this way, so the port breaks.  I recall
mention of net-snmp on the lists before, so it may be worth checking to
see if anyone submitted patches that haven't been brought into a dfport
override yet.  If you want to work on it more, you can try submitting
changes back to the port maintainer or creating a dfport.

Or, you can run 'pkg_add -r net-snmp'.  I have it installed now, though I
haven't explicitly tested it.  Trying a package before the port is
generally a good idea - the packages install faster, and you don't have to
worry about a successful build.
