The "make" showstopper above is valid with or without --with-doc in 
the ./configure line. Will it barf with the newer autoconf/automake?
reran autoconf and automake, no go, finally edited the Makefile to use 
what I had, then it made and installed. Fiddled with chown and finally 
got this configs /etc/nut stuff copied to the pi, and its running but 
the cable is unplugged. I need to go check a drawer in the lathe for a 
part another sheldon owner needs so I'll plug in the cable while out 
there.  BRB. Works:

Now  all I have to do is feed it to the pi's psu.
