Nevermind, panic over, ho hum, sorry to trouble you...
I eventually traced the problem to the fact I had the compression 
library, libz.so, installed in /usr/local/lib/ with the LD_LIBRARY_PATH
variable set so the dynamic linker could find it.

hfaxd and faxq found libz.so no problem, but when faxq execv'd the faxsend
to actually transmit the job, faxsend didn't get the environment so the
dynamic linker couln't find libz.so
This also explains why faxsend ran perfectly from the command line.
So I made a soft link from /usr/lib/libz.so to /usr/local/lib/libz.so
and everything works fine now...

Oh well.  Only 5 panic-stricken days to find it as feb 29 got ever closer
