Windows may be connecting to the UPS using a service automatically. I am not sure how you would stop it but at a guess I would trying looking for a likely service and stop it.

I think you'd have to mangle the configure script.
What does pkg-config --cflags libusb say on your system?

I believe it is compatible although 0.1 was evolved rather than designed :)
