If syslog-ng is selected in Buildroot and net-snmp is not, but net-snmp is
found on the host machine (at least its net-snmp-config script) then
compilation of syslog-ng fails with:

  CC       modules/snmp-dest/modules_snmp_dest_libsnmpdest_la-snmpdest-grammar.lo
  CC       modules/snmp-dest/modules_snmp_dest_libsnmpdest_la-snmpdest.lo

The path /usr/include is obtained via /usr/bin/net-snmp-config.

The fix comprises two parts:
1. only enable net-snmp support in syslog-ng if the net-snmp package is
enabled in Buildroot
2. for the case where net-snmp is selected in Buildroot, fix the configure
script of syslog-ng to allow parsing --with-netsnmp=<path> correctly.

+Subject: [PATCH] configure.ac: fix --with-netsnmp
+
+The option '--with-net-snmp' did not work, because later checks were using
+the variable '$with_netsnmp' rather than '$with_net_snmp'.
+
+There are two possible solutions:
+- make the option '--with-netsnmp'
+- change the internal variables
+
+Taking into account that latest upstream has moved away from autotools and
+towards cmake, we opt for the first option that has the least amount of
+changes.
