commit: http://git.buildroot.net/buildroot/commit/?id=e6b614c9c6e3e1cf9d8a2ee04c471aff9fb7b2ef
branch: http://git.buildroot.net/buildroot/commit/?id=refs/heads/master

NETSNMP_CAN_USE_SYSCTL is for BSD systems, setting it to yes on
Linux systems breaks compilation when the mibII mib is enabled.

Prior to commit 30bb1bdca49a1dcb71d477e546a40840af865ce2 ("netsnmp:
bump version") from November 2008, this variable was already set to
no, and was changed to yes by the commit, with no explanation. And the
previous code indeed had a comment saying:

   # We set CAN_USE_SYSCTL to no and use /proc since the sysctl code
   # in this thing is apparently intended for freebsd or some such
   # thing...
