OK, it looks like the FreeBSD 10.0 port of NUT does not source
nut.conf in the nut startup script.

Based upon your comment, though, I was able to accomplish what I
needed by adding

	command_args="-u _ups"

under the line


in /usr/local/etc/rc.d/nut which is the start/stop script for NUT.

Thanks again for your reply.
