I guess you aren't using the port then.. It 
installs /usr/ports/sysutils/nut/files/nut*.sh.in (after replacing 
certain items).

The port is now at 2.0.5, still rather ancient :(

Presumably the maintainer hasn't had the time to update it recently.. It 
shouldn't be too hard to update the port though, I will see if I can
