I'll take a look at that.

That bombs out as well:

root at miko[/usr/local/src/nut/drivers]# gmake tripplite_usb
gcc -I../include -O -Wall -Wsign-compare -I/usr/local/include -c 
tripplite_usb.ctripplite_usb.c: In function `upsdrv_initups':
tripplite_usb.c:568: too few arguments to function `HIDDumpTree'
tripplite_usb.c: At top level:
tripplite_usb.c:134: warning: `bootdelay' defined but not used
gmake: *** [tripplite_usb.o] Error 1

This is FreeBSD 4.11, just for reference.  I looked at the patches in the 
FreeBSD port for the released version of NUT and didn't see much of 
anything beyond a few changes in the Makefile.

I'm assuming that 2.0.2 does not support this UPS, correct?  As that does 
build clean.
