I've run sudo download-mibs and downloaded two additional MIB files (INFORMANT-OS-MIB, WTCS-MIB):

$ ls -lA /var/lib/mibs/site
total 456
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 460726 2012-05-22 16:52 INFORMANT-OS-MIB
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root   1088 2012-05-23 08:55 WTCS-MIB

And created a symlink in the standard MIB directory:

$ ls -lA /usr/share/mibs/site
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 18 2012-05-23 08:58 /usr/share/mibs/site -> /var/lib/mibs/site

But it's not able to translate this OID:

$ snmptranslate -Of

Your snmpconf is not including your custom MIBs. You need to make snmptranslate, which uses snmpconf aware of them. You do something like this:

snmptranslate -M+/usr/share/mibs/site -m+ALL -Of
