This is very strange as the spec file contains this entry for the snmpd.conf file:

%config(noreplace,missingok) %{_sysconfdir}/snmp/snmpd.conf

Which means (IIRC) that the config fiel should never be replaced. Maybe the 6.2
original version had a wrong entry for the config file, but it shouldn't matter
as the new rpm should deal with the replacement/change of the config file.

I'll look into it.

Read ya, Phil
