[Nut-upsuser] Building and configuring nut 2.6.0 - documentation issue?

This morning I finished building and configuring nut 2.6.0 on OpenBSD
4.8, and it is running fine.

While I was in the config files, I noticed what looks like it may be a
discrepancy between the config file commetns and the configure script

uspd.conf has the following comment:

# STATEPATH <path>
# STATEPATH /var/run/nut
# Tell upsd to look for the driver state sockets in 'path' rather
# than the default that was compiled into the program.

When I read that, I thought the default path compiled into the program
would be /var/run/nut

However, configure --help shows the following:

 --with-statepath=PATH   path for ups state files (/var/state/ups)

implying that /var/state/ups was the default.

Am I reading this incorrectly, or is there a [minor] discrepancy?
