    A couple of days ago I have modified a bit and recompiled the 
src.rpm from fedora rawhide (2.4.1) in order to make it work on Centos 5.3.
    The modified source rpms as well as the binaries as built by me are 
available from http://wolfy.fedorapeople.org/nut. It also requires newer 
versions of libcurl (which is also used by php so if you have php on the 
same system, you might need to either recompile either nut or php ) and 
powerman. The packages also need libssh2 from Centos-extras. The whole 
stack has been successfully installed by the friend for whom I 
recompiled the packages.

    Feel free to get in touch with me directly if you need help with 
these packages. However please ask on this list any nut-related 
question, I am acting just a packaging monkey wrt to nut.
