not at all. there are 2 approaches:
- the standard one, where you have a driver (usbhid-ups), upsd and upsmon.
udev only applies the device privileges rules.
- the Integrated Power Management approach, where NUT USB driver can feed
data to HAL (instead of upsd), replacing the basic USB/HID support in HAL.
Note that HAL is being superseded by DeviceKit and DeviceKit-power.
This approach will probably be abandonned...

use that one.
install it and edit the spec.
modifying --with-all by --with-usb should be sufficient.
