Well, there are lots of config options and documentation for the nut-ups
tools, but setting them up from pkgsrc tages hardly 5 minutes, and they
realy have nifty networking features (my UPSs have multiple computers 
connected to it, only one has the serial cable).

Actually all I ended up doing (take this with a grain of salt, this may not
be realy up to date with what is in pkgsrc now) was adding these lines to

upsd=YES	upsd_flags=""	
upsmon=YES	upsmon_host="localhost"

and filling in some real passwords and network names in
/usr/pkg/etc/nut/upsd.conf (after copying that from upsd.conf.sample).
