You can find pkgsrc/sysutils/apcupsd and nuts. They'll both handle
serial port APC UPSs. As far as I know, neither will handle USB UPSs
on NetBSD; there's apparently some support in nuts for Linux, but last
time I checked, quite a while back, it didn't compile on NetBSD and
might have been experimental even on Linux.
