Oh, I'm almost certain it's a configuration issue.  The very brief 
hosts.conf man page (which contains no information not found in 
hosts.conf.sample) only documents one available directive, which in my 
case is as follows:

MONITOR tokamak at localhost "HP R3000 XR (Server rack)"

upsc does indeed work.  upsstats.cgi doesn't.  upsstats.cgi(8) isn't 
really useful either.
