FC5 - Changes to snmptrad

With the upgrade to FC5, snmptrapd does not function "out of the box" as it
requires snmptrapd.conf with specific access control information. FC5 uses
net-snmp version 5.3.
According to the man page (5) for snmptrapd.conf:
"Previously, snmptrapd would accept all incoming notifications, and log them
automatically (even if no explicit configuration was provided). Starting
with release 5.3, access control checks will be applied to incoming notifi-
cations. If snmptrapd is run without a suitable configuration file (or
equivalent access control settings), then such traps WILL NOT be processed."
There is quite a bit of detail provided in the "access control" section of
the man page. Unfortunately, it is not obviously apparent what I need to do
in order to accept snmp traps from my Linksys router.
I was using linksysmon to parse and then log the incoming traps. However, I
suspended its use in order to find out what was happening with snmptrapd.
Can someone please point me to an example snmptrapd.conf file? It seems to
me that such a file should have been part of the package to start with.
Am I barking up the wrong tree? Should I be tweaking snmp.conf instead?
