Sorry, my mail did not go out...

For Solaris-like systems, I am aware of the SVR4 packaging recipe in NUT
source tree. This defaults to what the configure script args tell it, on my
box I see /etc/nut for configs in package files, and nobody:nobody as the
account - but I did not see any distributions delivering such packages. I
tested installing that in OmniOS FWIW.

There is also in-distro recipe for IPS pkg(5) package in OpenIndiana bolted
specifically to /etc/nut and nut:nut.

Identifying the systems could go via `uname -a` pointing to "SunOS" family
and "illumos" sub-species, and /etc/release common to Solarish systems with
layman's text about current boot environment.
