Dear Maintainer,

Net-SNMP has systemd integration support, including socket activation,
which would be very handy for letting snmptrapd run without root
privileges and even CAP_NET_BIND_SERVICE.  It would also enable getting
rid of the conditional and dependency directives in the current unit
file.  If you aren't comfortable with changing the unit files now,
shortly before hard freeze, at least enabling support in the daemons
would still be very useful and also very easy with the --with-systemd
configure flag.  That wouldn't change behavior, only enable taking
advantage of the support via local configuration.  If you're interested,
I'm willing to open a merge request for easier review.  The Salsa CI
passed on my fork with the trivial change.
