How install net-snmp on Solaris 8 from scratch

Last Modified: 2013-12-27
I have just installed a fresh copy of Solaris 8 sun4u sparc SUNW,Sun-Fire-V240.
I want to be able to monitor the memory and disk usage and cpu load.
I installed off of the 2 CD's that came with it the entire OEM (top option).
There are so many releases of net-snmp, GCC, SSL, etc.

Which ones do I download and where do I install them in what order.

Basically looking for some instructions, although I have been through the readme.solaris file from the net-snmp download.

I think I may have just got the wrong downloads.

I remember some of the errors was that it could not fin the libintl.so.3 file, etc....

Which option do I use with the ./configure command? (-with-mib-modules......???)

Any particular directory that I need to download and untar or unzip the files from?

Maybe there is someting better than net-snmp even, and possibloy even easier to install?
