Create '/usr/spool/fax'

Why are you using 'tty4c/tty4d'? in Linux it is ttyS0 ... ttyS3

Set up FAX_MODEM_TTYS in policy.h or in "-l ..." on the command line
accordingly. You are using the shipped defaults for two modems on
/dev/tty4c and /dev/tty4d, where definitely no serial port can be found on
Linux systems...

People would have less problems if they would read instructions...
