Depends on how you categorise things.

With the previous code, the default MIB path was set to something like:

$HOME/.snmp/mibs:/usr/local/lib/snmp/mibs

That ':' separator character apparently breaks MIB searching on
Cygwin/MinGW builds. (At least according to an old mail thread).
So this patch takes the coward's way out, and sets a single MIB directory.


I was actually more interested in committing the other stuff - this
patch has apparently been sitting in my SVN build tree for some time!

I'm quite happy for people to come up with a better solution,
or to declare this "not a problem".
(And even revert the patch, if that's felt best)
