Looking properly at the code, the AGENT-CAPABILITIES macro was almost correctly parsed. The referenced MIB module was loaded and the symbols looked up. The problem was only that DEFVAL clauses didn't lookup the names in the symbol type, but rather in the root context.

A fix for this issue has been committed to svn. Remains to handle the printing of the enumeration value when printing the DEFVAL clause in the pretty-printer.

The Mibble parser doesn't handle the AGENT-CAPABILITIES correctly. The supported modules should be automatically and locally loaded to be able to link symbols to their original incarnation. This is critical for DEFAULT-VALUE declarations that contain references to enumeration symbols, as a parse error will otherwise be triggered.

No easy workaround exist for this issue.
