Yes, you're right.  But there are some differences:

Snacc supports C, C++, and IDL and the encoding rules are
BER (Basic Encoding Rules).  In the Getronics snacc they are
DER (Distinguished Encoding Rules), a variant of BER.

The PWlib asnparser, as used in OpenH323, supports "only"
C++, AFAIK, and the encoding rules are PER (Packed Encoding

So, while I asked Thomas Bushnell to include asnparser in
pwlib-dev, and also wrote a little manual page for it, snacc
has its use of its own.
