It's collectd <http://collectd.org/>.

The story is this:
  First, a user complained that he couldn't build the plugin which
queries nut. After some debugging it turned out that his version of
libupsclient was linked against libssl. So I told him (how) to use
CFLAGS and put him off the next version which would use
`libupsclient-config' to get the flags right automatically. He came back
to me and said that the configure script detected the library correctly,
but he still had problems building the plugin. I saw in the CC output he
sent me that the type was missing and after upgrading my Debian packages
I could reproduce the problem..

I've added the appropriate checks to the configurescript now, but I
guess other client projects will have the same problem eventually..
