From what it looks, net-snmp/library/cert_util.h exposes openssl' data
types and that is probably why they Depend on libssl-dev in the
libsnmp-dev package. I grep the deps [0] and didn't find a user of
cert_util.h so it looks like nobody cares about that.

I would suggest to drop the the libssl1.0-dev dep in libsnmp-dev and add
a guard cert_util.h to ensure openssl's version is less than 1.1.0 in
case someone tries to use this on its own.
I will try to make that change tomorrow and rebuild the packages [0].
