Hello Greg,
yes you can compile it directly on the RPI. See anyway that if you
have the old deb package installed and you want to replace only the
recompiled driver, you may have some mismatch with the
pidpath/statepath directories (/var/state/ups vs /var/run/nut). I
tried to do it in a clean way by making a debian package on the RPi,
but it was requiring to install all the documentation tools, and I did
not have enough SD disk space for that.
