setup.cache is not really a configuration file for any binary component in 
hylafax, it is only used by faxsetup and the sysvinit script if it is present.

ie textfmt, sendfax, faxq, hfaxd, faxgetty do not ever look there.

What is the error output from:
         /usr/local/sbin/textfmt < /etc/hosts

The textfmt man page should tell you by default where it is looking for 
font metrics.
