Description of problem:
here is the changelog entry from my spec patch:
- mib2c* should be in -perl package
- use the official homepage URL
- let's remove "*.bs" with a "safer" snippet, checking if file is
really empty
   (maybe they're still useful/used on different arch?)

Version-Release number of selected component:

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
rpm -qpl net-snmp-utils-5.2-2.i386.rpm |grep mib2c

Well the mib2c-update is a script for merging created code into updated mib2c
code, so it's more utility than a part perl package. 

The removing of .bs is not a big deal but I will add it to the next rawhide

Agreed. But I forgot to mention my intentions: minimizing perl impact on
net-snmp-* packages requirements which at the moment are quite high.
One by one:

* package net-snmp includes:
   => requires /usr/bin/perl
      (iep, I know rpm automatic dependencies generator suck at this one as IMHO
       it shouldn't look for any dependencies below %_docdir) ;-)
   => it shouldn't be included as it is duplicated in -utils sub-package

   => used by the perl subsysem of snmptrapd, so it _should_ (again a
      find-requires miss: NetSNMP::TrapReceiver) require the -perl sub-package
   => let's move it to perl sub-package

* net-snmp-utils: some scripts require the perl compiler (hehe, and none uses
net-snmp interface), but here I think it should be quite OK to allow perl as
 The only thing is in fact that "mib2c-update" is using "mib2c" to do its job,
so - in an ideal world - we should require net-snmp-perl too, which is not so
good at the moment, as it should be the only (and not significant) reason to do
this. This is in fact the main reason for proposing to be moving mib2c-update
from utils to perl.

I am sorry for long time of silence from Fedora. It seems the bug has been fixed
really long time ago and nobody closed the bug.
