I think GXT3 support was added after 2.7.2 was released.

Since you are building from source already, I recommend grabbing the latest snapshot from this page:


At the moment, it is (we are working on releasing 2.7.3).

There is a bug in our NSS detection - it found the wrong nss.h.

Filed an issue so we don't forget: https://github.com/networkupstools/nut/issues/184

You will need to install something like 'libnss-devel' (or maybe 'lib64nss-devel'?) to get the NSS headers and development library.
