As others said, if you get an APC then apcupsd works flawlessly. I am
using it myself on both Linux and FreeBSD.
If you do buy something else though, have a look at

/usr/ports/sysutils/nut

This is the network ups tools program that supports a variety of UPSes
and is very configurable. Have a look at their website and see if it
supports your intended model.
I have not used the BSD port myself, but I am using it with a cheap
mustek ups on Linux and it works without problems.
