Well, those were the issues alright.  I suppose I erroneously assumed
that by specifying /var/lib/mibs for mibdirs it would search any
directories /below/ that path for MIBs, I guess this isn't the case.  I
changed my mibdirs to the following:

mibdirs /var/lib/mibs/juniper:/var/lib/mibs/iana:/var/lib/mibs/ietf

And, after changing the delimiter to a colon, OIDs are now translated

Thanks for the help!
