Likely you wanted to say "$BIN/mmencode" instead of just "mmencode".

While we're at it: I didn't modify faxrcvd at all (which saved me a life
during reinstalls). Instead I just set up two new files in $SPOOL/etc:

# hack alert: modify bin/faxrcvd behaviour: output both PostScript and TIFF
FAX2PS=". $SPOOL/etc/FaxDispatch.local"

# send anything to hmo; change according to taste
case "$SENDER" in
	*) SENDTO=hmo;;

#!/bin/sh -x
# first output PostScript, then MIME boundary, then TIFF
# scale PostScript to A4 paper
$TIFFBIN/fax2ps -S -H11.6929 -W8.26772 $1
echo ""
echo "Content-Type: application/fax"
echo "Content-Description: FAX document"
echo "Content-Transfer-Encoding: base64"
echo "Content-Disposition: inline; filename=\"`basename $1`\""
echo ""
$BIN/mmencode $1

This serves me with both a PostScript (for printing) and a TIFF version
(for viewing) of the received faxes. Feel free to improve.
