Hmmm - that's what ./configure usually deals with?? It didn't complain.

Well - that did it!! It was running as root, but as usual, SELINUX was killing me. Strangely, I didn't see any SELINUX errors, but I ran restorecon on /etc/snmp and that fixed it. I assume the issue has been, from the get go, that snmpd never was able to read the /etc/snmp/snmpd.conf. Good catch.
