The code is generated by mib2c-conf.d/subagent.m2c, and is completely
independent of MfD. Now that we have subversion, maybe it should be moved up
(and renamed *.conf) with the other conf files.

The code is basically a stripped down copy of snmpd.c, and the intent is to
allow for easy testing of a module as either an agentx subagent or as a normal
snmp agent, without having to build the standard agent.

It should be easy to adapt this conf file for use with _any_ module generated
by mib2c.
