I have a taken a closer look and the issue is a little more complex that
I thought. The NetSNMP build uses --host and --build, which is normal,
however this tripped logic in the RSB which made it think it was a
Canadian cross (Cxc) build so it did not install the package once built.
Cxc builds do not install because the resulting packages are for a
different host and often the prefix used is not writable on the build
host. Fixing NetSNMP broken the Cxc build of the tools. I am working
through the issues and have NetSNMP building and the Cxc is still not

Joel, this needs to be fixed for the branch.
