monitoring freeradius with snmp

I have a requirement to monitor freeradius with snmp.
According to the freeradius web site and other sources I've done the
1. compiled freeradius with the '--with-snmp' option
2. modified the freeradius snmp.conf file to include

smux_password = verysecret

2. modified the radiusd.conf file with 

	snmp = yes
	$INCLUDE  ${confdir}/snmp.conf

3. modified the net-snmp snmpd.conf file to include

smuxpeer . verysecret

4. started the radiusd and snmpd daemons.

When I do an 'snmpwalk -v1 -c public localhost system' I get the
'system' info from the MIB (as expected).
When I walk enterprises.3317 I get nothing.

I didn't actually expect to get much as I have a huge gap in my
knowledge which is the smux. I'm not sure how it works or how I
implement it successfully.

Has anyone implemented an smux or monitoring freeradius with snmp.
If you have, It would be great if you would impart with any knowledge
you may have so I can sort this out.

Thanks for your time
