Updated net-snmp packages that fix several bugs and add one enhancement are now
available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.

The net-snmp packages provide various libraries and tools for the Simple Network
Management Protocol (SNMP), including an SNMP library, an extensible agent,
tools for requesting or setting information from SNMP agents, tools for
generating and handling SNMP traps, a version of the netstat command which uses
SNMP, and a Tk/Perl management information base (MIB) browser.

These updated net-snmp packages include a number of bug fixes and enhancements.
