This post caught my attention because I've had a 64 bit -> 32 bit truncation error in my SNMP logs since I installed net-snmp on my AMD64 a year ago. I was unable to figure out how to add -DWITH_MFD_REWRITES to make so I ended up editing the Makefile and added --enable-mfd-rewrites (the compile told me --with-mfd-rewrites had been replace by --enable-mfd-rewrites). My error messages now seems to have disappeared so I'm extremely happy. I later found the following info in NEWS: Solaris, FreeBSD, OpenBSD: - Experimental support for 64bit interface counters (ifXTable). Enable via '--with-mib-modules=if-mib --enable-mfd-rewrites'. So I have two questions: 1) Is --with-mib-modules=if-mib already covered in the Makefile? I can see the parameter but it refers to a variable I don't know the contents of. The variable seems to refer to the build option NET_SNMP_MIB_MODULES which is mentioned at the beginning of the compile process but I don't know how to use it or its initial value. 2) Is there anyway to enable these two options during make without editing the Makefile?
