I saw a few warnings:

Hopefully the preceding lines compiled properly - we use those
structures all over the place.

Is there a way to flag a statement as "not reached" with the Sun C
compiler? We have a comment to that effect in the code there.

I am not familiar with Solaris' 32/64 bit support. Is there some other
place in the code that we are specifying 32-bit code? Should we check
some system variable and look for net-snmp-config-32 before

I suspect that we would want to handle this earlier in the
configuration process, probably around when those options are
retrieved. Is there a chance that someone would see "-R../lib" with
the absolute path ending up as something other than /usr/sfw/lib? (I
am trying to find out how reasonable it would be to hardcode that
