We could also remove that line of code, or move the code from the
preceding default to outside the switch cases. I have to agree with
the compiler here, that this code is unreachable and might just as
well be removed.

In that case, this is either a problem with installing the wrong
Net-SNMP version or the SUNWsmcmd package is badly broken. Rather than
attempting to fix this, this should be fixed upstream.

Yes. But this is also something that should be fixed upstream. Knowing
this, I think it makes sense to check for the usability of the
Net-SNMP library during configuration not by just checking if the
header files are installed, but also by checking if we can link a test
program. At least the remaining stuff will then build properly.
