Use $* in the trap format for that OID/generic/specific that comes in.
That'll shut trapd up and let it gracefully deal with the variability.

Then script a command (using ksh, Perl, or even C if ya like) for
automatic action that handles 3 4 or 5 varbinds appropriately as you
wish.  Send an event to TEC then with postemsg. 

The scripting is left as an (albeit fairly straightfoward) exercise to
the user.   You have a situation that requires some customization via
scripting, and I'm afraid no one can shield you from having to do that
