Description of problem:
The efax interface to LPR, FAXLPR, fails to send any faxs. You pass it a 
printjob and it doesn't appear to do anything with it, the job just disappears, 
there is no logs written or anything. we have tested the the job is getting to 
faxlpr by changing the filter for another program and that showed output. We 
have also tested the efax program by calling it manually to send a fax and that 
works fine.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):efax-0.9-9

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.setup efax according to instructions and HOWTO
2.send it a printjob with lpr -P fax -J 01403790160 testfax
3.voila fax job disappears

Actual Results:  nothing. The fax job disappears and no logs are written

Expected Results:  It should have sent testfax to the fax number listed
