The nut startup script on FreeBSD is, as it currently exists, an all
or nothing script. You need to comment out the lines you don't want to
be called.

It shouldn't be that hard to split it into a pair of scripts, one for
the client and one for the server (and have the client enabled by the
server keyword too).  I may have a look at that over the next few days
and send a patch to the FreeBSD maintainer.

                 Please keep list traffic on the list.
