When I launch newhidups by hand the following way :
/usr/local/libexec/nut/newhidups -DDD -u root mge
/var/db/nut contains :
emss at box:~# ll /var/db/nut/
total 0
srw-rw----  1 root  wheel  0 22 nov 15:03 newhidups-mge
Log is available here :

upsd then can't find the socket :
emss at box:~# upsd -DDD -u root
Network UPS Tools upsd 2.0.4
Can't connect to UPS [mge] (newhidups-auto): No such file or directory
Synchronizing........ giving up

If I launch newhidups via :
emss at box:~# /usr/local/libexec/nut/upsdrvctl start mge
Network UPS Tools - UPS driver controller 2.0.4
Network UPS Tools: New USB/HID UPS driver 0.28 (2.0.4)

Using subdriver: MGE HID 0.9

upsd finds the socket but doesn't synchronize :
emss at box:~# /usr/local/sbin/upsd -DDD -u root
Network UPS Tools upsd 2.0.4
Connected to UPS [mge]: newhidups-auto
Synchronizing........ giving up
Pinging UPS [mge]
