Package mgetty-sendfax

Provides support for sending faxes over a modem

http://mgetty.greenie.net/

Sendfax is a standalone backend program for sending fax files. The
mgetty program (a getty replacement for handling logins over a serial
line) plus sendfax will allow you to send faxes through a Class 2
modem.

If you'd like to send faxes over a Class 2 modem, you'll need to
install the mgetty-sendfax and the mgetty packages.
