I'm running "debuild -us -uc" and, as you said, getting a lot of unmet build dependencies.  My questions are, should I upgrade my hardy system with these dependencies or override them with -d?  I ultimately want to install nut 2.4.1 on a different server system running hardy.  Will these dependencies need to be upgraded on this server system as well?  If so, I'm not sure I want to configure this system beyond the standard hardy install.

Thanks for your help.  As you suggested, I would prefer to install a deb package for nut 2.4.1 since it does offer better integration.
