Proxy support should allow for retrieving the community
string from the incoming request to be proxied if the
proxy statement in the
snmpd.conf file does not contain the '-c' option.

Fix is forthcoming. Fix is to allow for omission of
'-c' option
when token statement parsed and to use the request
community string on the session when the request is
forwarded. ("on the session" == place c.s. temporarily
on
session data structure if current c.s. is NULL).

    smells like a new feature to me... patch applied for 5.2,
    rejected for older releases.
