I haven't noticed this.  I have installed fax servers several times now
using RedHat 7.0 (I use the RedHat errata updates, of course), and I
haven't noticed any HylaFAX problems because of it.

Unless you have reconfigured your default RedHat installation, the RPMs
should not only be easier to use, but they should also be better to use, in
that your installation will be consistent with other RedHat users, and also
because you get all of the great OS-specific installation tidbits that the
packager includes.

And now you see the value in using the RPM.  You've got a one-of-a-kind
installation that is behaving differently than it should.  That makes it
hard to diagnose.  But, you can take the fax one step at a time and see if
the fault is with HylaFAX or Ghostscript or what.  You know, it wouldn't
surprise me that if you hadn't updated your gcc by the time you did the
compilation that faxgetty (or whatever it is that writes the tiff file)
isn't thinking straight.

Make it in tgif and mark the intended dynamic text somehow, print it to EPS
file, edit it with a text editor to change the dynamic text from quoted
text to variables by removing the parenthesis.  See:
