I am packaging an RPM for RHEL6, built from net-snmp-5.7.2.tar.gz. I see that the file /etc/rc.d/init.d/snmpd gets created and packaged but I do not see the init file for /etc/rc.d/init.d/snmptrapd. Is snmptrapd depreciated?

Did I forget to pass the right switch to ./configure?

Doh! There it is in the dist directory but it is called snmptrapd-init.d
