What else do you need?

No "hurd" in there. How big is the chance that the net-snmp coders

Well, this is exactly what this bug^1 is about. I've installed the
snmpd package from Debian and used the default configuration. Result:

hille@kloetzer:~ $ snmpget -v2c -c public .
SNMPv2-MIB::sysObjectID.0 = OID: SNMPv2-SMI::dod.

.. I've rebuilt the package from the sources and got the same result.
The configure options of the package do not manipulate the
sysObjectID. So this can be either:

- a broken patch in the Debian package, or
- an upstream bug.

As we see the same behavior on FreeBSD, I guess the latter is the case.
