Hylafax 6 on Centos 5

I'm doing another SCO to Linux conversion and this one used Vsifax. That's hardly a show stopper, but this customer wanted to use Centos and Vsifax says they don't currently support using Centos. We figured we'd try it anyway (they have a trial version) but I couldn't make it work. It would queue up the faxes, but when it tried to send, it would always fail. So I downloaded a current tar-ball for Hylafax ad did the ./configure as usual.

Hylafax on Centos Scripts  
- Aside from transferring user accounts, printers, and so on, my work was just to convert Vsifax scripts to Hylafax. Those scripts were called by the application program to do such things as fax a Purchase Order to a vendor. The programming is simple enough: you find and extract the fax number and pass that all off to Hylafax. For purposes of logging and error control, we also wanted to identify the vendor name, which required adding that name to the logs that Hylafax keeps or maintaining a separate index of names to faxes queued. -
