it depends on the deps!
first, you can trim down debian/control Build-deps, remove the powerman-pdu
packages and possibly some more (nut-snmp?) according to your needs.
then go to debian/rules and remove the uneeded options from the configure
after that, the remaining deps should be straightworfard... you may want to
force --without-wrap or bring down the dep on libwrap too.
maybe one more iirc: the debhelper dep. can be brought down to hardy's
version if you remove the dh_lintian call in debian/rules.

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.

sure ;-)
