With default PREFIX="/usr/local", pkg-message suggests: snmpd_conffile="/usr/local/share/snmp/snmpd.conf /etc/snmpd.conf" But by default snmpd also searches and reads snmpd.conf from the following directories: /usr/local/etc/snmp /usr/local/share/snmp /usr/local/lib/snmp $HOME/.snmp If a user choose to use "/usr/local/share/snmp/snmpd.conf", that file would be read and processed twice, which is unnecessary, or sometimes causes snmpd unable to start. For example in "/usr/local/share/snmp/snmpd.conf.example", the following line configure listening address: agentAddress udp:127.0.0.1:161 If it is in "/usr/local/share/snmp/snmpd.conf", snmpd will bind on udp:127.0.0.1:161 twice and fail with log messages: "Error opening specified endpoint "udp:127.0.0.1:161" Server Exiting with code 1" I suggest change $snmpd_conffile in pkg-mesasge.in to: snmpd_conffile="%%PREFIX%%/etc/snmpd.conf /etc/snmpd.conf" Or something not conflict with the above default search paths.
