Subject: snmpd not reporting interfaces on x86_64
Package: snmpd
Version: 5.2.3-7
Severity: important

# snmpwalk -Os -c public -v 1 localhost ifdesc
End of MIB

running x86_64 snmpwalk against x86 box works.

running x86 snmpwalk against x86_64 box shows the same "End of MIB"

Note: x86 box using x86 versions of same kernel and snmpd.

running snmpd -DALL shows interfaces being added to the mib, but
they cannot be requested after the fact.

This bug prevents packages like cacti from reporting network stats.
