Since you don't need any drivers, you should be able to download the source code then run ./configure && make. (NUT will still attempt to detect and build a lot of stuff you don't need, but if the machine is new enough to run Lion, it should be quick.)

Creating a launchd plist with the right paths and such has been on my todo list for some time now. (That project has been stuck since my Mac has an APC UPS that usbhid-ups can't steal away from the built-in OS UPS monitoring code.)

The plist is probably going to look something like this:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
<plist version="1.0">
