Compiling dnsdist yourself with snmp support is probably what you need
to do. You'll need to install the net-snmp-dev package (or similar) for
you OS.

Alternatively, you can use the packages for Debian Buster, Ubuntu
Bionic, CentOS 7 or
8(on the correct OS of course) from repo.powerdns.com. Those are built
with snmp support enabled.
