Doesn't everyone use.perl (unless you explicitly need to keep
multiple versions on your box)? I would take the newer Perl if given
a choice ...

Check this: http://perlmonks.org/?node_id=396223

isn't this the Net::SNMP perl module?

The article above explains the difference between that and the Perl
stuff that comes with:

> /ports/net-mgmt/net-snmp5
the port of net-snmp 5.x
