Heh.  I remember most things about bugs I filed 6 years ago, but it's
true, I don't expect that of other people.  Looking at the changelog,
I see in libsensors2 days it used to drag in a kernel module (and
hence a newish kernel) --- maybe something like that was it.

It does seem like it should be possible to make the lmSensors MIB
optional, for example by using dlopen, if someone is interested (in
which case this bug should be reopened).

Thanks for explaining.
