snmp(1) added to -current

Contributed by rueda on from the manage me simply dept.

Martijn van Duren (martijn@) has committed a new Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) client, snmp(1):

Module name:	src
Changes by:	2019/08/09 00:17:59

Added files:
	usr.bin/snmp   : Makefile mib.c mib.h smi.c smi.h snmp.1 snmp.c 
	                 snmp.h snmpc.c 

Log message:
Import snmp(1), a new snmp client which aims to be netsnmp compatible for
supported features.  It only supports get, getnext, walk, bulkget, bulkwalk,
trap, mibtree, and is SNMPv1 and SNMPv2c for now.

This will shortly replace snmpctl entirely. People using snmpctl are encouraged
to test and migrate to this code as soon as possible.

Much help with the manpage from schwarze@ and jmc@
No objections from reyk@
"Roll it in" deraadt@

This should be appearing in snapshots shortly; if you use snmpctl much today, please do test and report back to Martijn about any unexpected behaviour or possibly even feature requests.
