The HOWTO will soon be altered to read:

You can manually follow the procedure used by make_faxcover with good
success. First, you need to generate a simple Postscript or EPS document.
In *NIXes you can use tgif. In Windows you can generate a simple Postscript
document from any text editor such as Microsoft Word by configuring a new
printer on the system using the Apple Laserwriter driver printing to a
file. Make sure that in the driver properties under the "Postscript"
options the EPS or portable option is used. Create your document first, but
using easily-found markers (such as "XXXX-to") to identify your intended
dynamic (variable) fields. Then, print your document to a file using the
newly installed printer driver. Using an ASCII text editor, edit the
created Postscript file, changing marked sections into Postscript
variables, usually by removing the marker and the accompanying parenthesis.
For example, changing "(XXXX-from) SH" into "from SH". See faxcover(1) for
an exact list of available faxcover variables. A sample BreakIntoLines
routine can be seen at:

please review Bug 81. 

The failure of make_faxcover is directly related to Bug 81.  Please read it.
