After installing the net-snmp port, add snmpd_enable="YES" to your /etc/rc.conf. Then the snmpd daemon will start upon next boot (startup script should be in /usr/local/etc/rc.d). Then do your standard Openview snmp discovery for this machine. That should be enough to get you started. If you want to change the data reported, you will need to do some reading at that point to learn how to extend the MIB. The O'reilly book on snmp is logical place to start for this.
