This is valid, yes. But as netsnmp does not have that many dependencies we should just
rebuild them for the upcoming release:

- 389 rebuild from you :-)
- cyrus_impad from Rafi
- mbrowse either rebuild or drop
- ntp rebuild from James
- php rebuild from Ben

Just let me know when you have finished a new CSWnetsnmp with split libs and
without legacy libs, put it in /home/experimental/netsnmp, I'll install it then
on testing* and we can rebuild the upper packages against it, put it also in
experimental and upload the whole bunch at once.

Best regards
