On behalf on Marc, I have updated his work to current net-snmp 
( The resulting patches are attached:
- 61_vacm_missing_dependency_check.{patch,README}: the original Marc's patch,
  refreshed, with readme renamed to match patch file (like other patches)
- hurd.diff: the needed changes to the debian/rules. They slightly differ from
  Marc's initial version:
  - the host check is done using DEB_HOST_ARCH_OS, like for the other archs
  - the "host" module is added for any non-hurd host
  - the link creation of config.{guess,sub} now forces the overwriting of the
    target destination (as they seem to exist already?)
  - ipv6 is enabled on Hurd, it seems it is compiling correctly now

Do not call vacm_standard_views() if the corresponding module was not compiled.
