When I went to install the ups, I found I had wired that 5 volt psu 
direct, so I'll need to do a clean shutdown, break into the supply line 
yadda yadda. At that point I found that the 2nd of 3 rosewill usb-3.1 to 
sata adapters had died. Gave up for the night and walked away.

Today, after loseing 400something at the property tax office, I found 
another adapter, so I unmounted it, swapped the cable, ran an e2fsck on 
it which gave the drive a clean bill of health instantly.  So I've now 
written the unpacked 2.7.4 tarball to /media/pi/workspace/nut-2.7.4.

The copy operation over an sshfs share, by mc, made it all owned by pi, 
which is me on that rpi4.
 
Since I already know the cable works and udev finds it by name, I need 
to ./configure it for usb-only access, but a ./configure --help isn't 
that helpfull about what else I can disable.

So for starters, what's the best ./configure command line?

Thanks folks.

Cheers, Gene Heskett
