This is debian stretch. The directory exists.

root at coyote:amanda-master$ ls -l /var/run/nut
total 8
-rw-r--r-- 1 nut  nut  6 May  7 10:40 upsd.pid
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 6 May  7 10:43 upsmon.pid

The real problem as I recall from a couple days back, is that the 
usbhid-ups driver was left out of this kernel build. Since this is 
pretty close to an rt kernel, I don't know if the LCNC folks will build 
another kernel with it, and issue the update.

I have made them aware of it however.
