Hello.

There  is  little  bug  in check_snmp.c (line 341) which is preventing
compilation  on  platforms  using  gcc  2.*  (Solaris,  FreeBSD  4 for
example).

341: char *str[MAX_INPUT_BUFFER];
342: asprintf(str, "=%s%s;;;; ", show, type ? type : "");
341: strcat(perfstr, *str);

Older  gcc does not allow declarations here, this line should be moved
to the top of main() (line 144 for example).

This is somehow related to <30A4A13F-63D9-4FEB-8766-E436116A62E9 at khan.org>
(Problem compiling check_snmp.c on Solaris 8 [with fix?])

Details (for future list archive searches):

A: Because it messes up the order in which people normally read text.
