snmpcheck -t 127.0.0.1 shows all network interfaces to me of F17. In addition, "snmpwalk locahost ifTable" shows all interfaces.
Is your snmpd configured properly? Default /etc/snmp/snmpd.conf is quite strict and does not make interface information public. Try /etc/snmp/snmpd.conf with only one line:
(beware, this is very benevolent configuration, use for testing only).
If snmpcheck still does not work with the above configuration file and "snmpwalk -v2c -c public localhost ifTable" does not show anything useful, look at /var/log/messages and attach any snmpd lines to this bug.
Closing the bug as the reporter did not provide additional information.
