OK, I have started looking at UPSMON instead of NUT.  It is running
perfectly on a FreeBSD 3.2-RELEASE box but when I do make install on a
4.0-RELEASE box I get

bash-2.03# pwd
bash-2.03# make install
===>  Extracting for upsmon-2.1.3
>> Checksum OK for upsmon-2.1.3.tar.gz.
===>  Patching for upsmon-2.1.3
===>  Applying FreeBSD patches for upsmon-2.1.3
===>  Configuring for upsmon-2.1.3
===>  Building for upsmon-2.1.3

Can anyone help please!

If you're talking about ports/sysutils/upsmon then that should work out of
the box on a SmartUPS 700.

If you're talking about (ports/sysutils/nut/)
then I can't help I'm afraid.

Internet connection, $19.95 a month.  Computer, $799.95.  Modem, $149.95.
Telephone line, $24.95 a month.  Software, free.  USENET transmission,
hundreds if not thousands of dollars.  Thinking before posting, priceless.
