For posterity, here's the discussion thread from last March: http://article.gmane.org/gmane.comp.monitoring.nut.devel/6669

I may not have been clear then, but the changes to the driver/*.c files will definitely require a recompile/install of at least the usbhid-ups driver.

If you are looking for something more turnkey, you may want to consider building packages for a few of the common distributions. It has been on my TODO list for some time to gather the instructions on how to do this from all of the various mailing list posts, but the information is out there.
