Description of problem:
I have installed the latest net-snmp from rawhide, and snmpd does not support
ipv6. When I attempt to start it, it exits immediately, with a 'startup
successful' message.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
net-snmp-5.0.8-3

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open /etc/rc.d/init.d/snmpd
2. Change the line that reads:

OPTIONS="-s -l /dev/null -P /var/run/snmpd -a"

to

OPTIONS="-s -l /dev/null -P /var/run/snmpd -a udp:161,udp6:161"

3. Run sudo /sbin/service snmpd start
    

Actual Results: 

$ sudo tail /var/log/messages

Apr 30 19:54:38 pluto net-snmp[16305]: Error opening specified endpoint "udp6:161"
Apr 30 19:54:38 pluto net-snmp[16305]: Server Exiting with code 1
Apr 30 19:54:38 pluto snmpd: snmpd startup succeeded

$ ps -ax | grep snmpd
16767 pts/5    S      0:00 grep snmpd

Expected Results: 

$ sudo tail /var/log/messages

Apr 30 20:02:12 pluto net-snmp[16450]: NET-SNMP version 5.0.6
Apr 30 20:02:13 pluto snmpd: snmpd startup succeeded

$ ps -ax | grep snmpd
16631 ?        S      0:00 /usr/sbin/snmpd -s -l /dev/null -P /var/run/snmpd -a
udp:161
16767 pts/5    S      0:00 grep snmpd


Additional info:

The message 'snmpd startup succeeded' is misleading, as it has not started at all.

Is this problem still valid? Seems to be fixed.
