Getting Dell SNMP MIB to work on Debian?

I'm still struggling to get the Dell 18092 MIB to work on my Debian etch
host. I can't seem to get dsm_sa_snmp32d working. 

One thread I read said that I should be able to run 'dataeng
enablesnmp', but this doesn't seem to work:
centernet:~# snmpwalk -v2c -c xxxxxxxx localhost .1.3.6.1.4.1.674.10892
SNMPv2-SMI::enterprises.674.10892 = No more variables left in this MIB
View (It is past the end of the MIB tree)

I am able to manually run dsm_sa_snmp32d, but I still can't access the
Dell MIBs:
centernet:/var/log# locate dsm_sa

I did just notice these messages in /var/log/daemon:
Jun 20 11:09:53 cn2 snmpd[26225]: Received TERM or STOP signal...
shutting down... 
Jun 20 11:09:58 cn2 snmpd[23328]: cache has existing timer id. 
Jun 20 11:09:58 cn2 snmpd[23328]: /etc/snmp/snmpd.conf: line 429:
Warning: Unknown token: smuxpeer. 
Jun 20 11:09:58 cn2 snmpd[23328]: NET-SNMP version 5.2.3

I thought that this was the correct entry in /etc/snmp/snmpd.conf:
centernet:/var/log# tail -2 /etc/snmp/snmpd.conf 
# Allow Systems Management Data Engine SNMP to connect to snmpd using
SMUX
smuxpeer .1.3.6.1.4.1.674.10892.1
centernet:/var/log#

Any suggestions on what I'm doing wrong? Is the sequence or order in
which I'm doing thing significant? Thanks in advance for all your help
and advice.
