[Nut-upsuser] Device not found--newhidups, FreeBSD 4.10,

I've been using nut with a serial device for a while, but today I tried
hooking up this new CyberPower 685 unit via newhidups--since it seemed
better supported over USB than serial, based on reading the list
archives and cvs logs. Unfortunately, I can't connect to it.
My system sees the device:
uhid1: CPS UPS BF700, rev 1.10/0.01, addr 2, iclass 3/0
... and I have chmodded all the USB stuff in /dev to 777, just to make
things easier at first.
Anyway, I grabbed the nut development source off CVS, compiled/installed
(including the USB stuff), and tried to connect to the 685AVR. (I also
installed libusb, of course.)
# newhidups -DD -u root -x vendorid=0764 auto
But, it's no dice:
Network UPS Tools: New USB/HID UPS driver 0.28 (2.1.0)
debug level is '2'
No appropriate HID device found
No matching USB/HID UPS found
I have also tried specifying the USB device directly, ie /dev/uid1 but
that doesn't help.
I'm using a USB keyboard on this FreeBSD 4.1 system, which is also
detected as a HID device, so I don't believe that my USB HID is borked
in general--though I have never used libusb before so I can't be
positive it is working properly, though it installed fine.
How should I start troubleshooting this?
Thanks in advance!
