That's OK. If NUT is compiled without HAL support, that's fine too.

I don't understand. You either use the 'classic' NUT or the HAL enabled
one. You can't have both installed at the same time.

See above.

Then you must build NUT without HAL support and always run the 'classic'
  NUT. The HAL enabled version is mainly meant for desktop systems to
provide a zero-configuration UPS support. If that's not what you want,
compile NUT without HAL support.

When building the package, adding '--without-hal' to the configuration
options should do the trick. If you're using RPM (or something like
that) packaging the respective files in a separate package may do the
trick also.
