NO, NO, NO. NetView does NOT load any trap definitions when you compile
mibs. This is a misconception.
Adding trap definitions is a separate step. If you have a MIB with trap
definitions in it, the you must use the mib2trap function to get an addtrap
script generated, and this in turn will add your traps to trapd.conf when
it is run.
To get this function to work properly, you must be at NetView V5.1
(Sorry if you find my emphasis offensive. I have been trying to stamp out
this misconception for some time).

Normally which you compile the mibs, Netview will/should load the all the
definitions supllied with the specific mib. So try and load the mibs...
