NUT - UPS Monitoring software

Has anyone used this.  I have done the make install and got lots of lovely
programs in /usr/local/sbin (upsd/upsc/upsmon/etc) but I cannot find out how
to make the damn thing work.

I have look around both the FreeBSD site and the NUT site with no luck,
there are no man pages, and despite editing and renaming the upsd.conf etc
files I cannot get it working.  It just says that the data for the UPS is
stale.  I have an APC SmartUPS 700 on com1.

Any help would be appreciated.
