use the following configuration line to get back inline with deb directives:

./configure --prefix= --includedir=/usr/include --mandir=/usr/share/man
--sysconfdir=/etc/nut --localstatedir=/var --without-ssl --with-cgi
--with-dev --enable-static --with-statepath=/var/run/nut
--with-altpidpath=/var/run/nut --with-drvpath=/lib/nut
--with-cgipath=/usr/lib/cgi-bin/nut --with-htmlpath=/usr/share/nut/www
--with-pidpath=/var/run/nut --datadir=/usr/share/nut
--with-pkgconfig-dir=/usr/lib/pkgconfig --with-user=nut --with-group=nut
--with-udev-dir=/lib/udev --without-doc

you may also want to disable a few more things, like CGI, by using
"--without-cgi" for example...
this will lower the dependencies barrier.
