add option to force use of snmpget/snmpwalk binaries instead of php built-ins

Due to bugs/incompatabilities with the PHP 7.x SNMP functions in PHP and cacti, some graphs do not update within cacti.
The workaround is to uninstall phpXX-snmp but this is not desirable as other installed software may use it successfully.
An alternative is to forcibly cause cacti to use the binaries and skip the autodetection of the PHP functions.

This patch adds an option (default on) to override the automatic detection and force the use of the binary utils.

Committer: please ignore gettext warnings, cacti has internal gettext handling.

I've requested merge-quarterly as it affects the basic usage of cacti for users.
