There are two types of USB-based drivers in NUT: those that use
Linux-specific calls (old hidups, possibly energizerups) and those
that use the libusb portability layer. "tripplite_usb" falls into the
latter category.

That said, AIX is not on the compatibility list here:

Does AIX provide any Linux binary compatibility? You might be able to
use libusb compiled for Linux/PowerPC, but USB is probably not one of
those things that they provide emulation support for. I have not used
AIX in about ten years, though, so I don't know.
