Procurve MIBs and HP SIM 6.0

I'm attempting to monitor some Procurve 6600 switches using HP SIM 6.0. I've successfully configured SNMP on the switches, but all traps are appearing in SIM as Generic Unregistered. Research so far has suggested that there is no out-of-the-box MIB support for these devices and that I need to install/compile/register the relevant MIBs.
I've found and downloaded the Procurve MIB bundle which includes dozens of MIB files and associated documentation, and made a start on installing them. However, I'm not convinced it's going to work as many of the MIBs aren't compiling properly.
I'm hoping that someone has experience in this procedure as it could take a long time to complete and I'd appreciate any advice that could save time or confirm that the effort would be worthwhile.
