Well, probably not.  And didn't you ask us this about 4 days back?
Your posting style looks fairly familiar, but perhaps it was someone

As the message also says -- and admittedly, parts of it scrool too fast
for comfort -- "if you're not planning to use these programs (or don't
know what they are) you can ignore this warning.

You don't mention *which* HylaFAX RPM you're using, but I'm not sure
there was ever an RH7 RPM that should exhibit the "dreaded libtiff
incompatibility" (ie: having been built for systems with libtiff 3.5.4
or earlier), so unless your RH7 resulted from an upgrade, that
*shouldn't* be your problem...

But if it *only* happens from WHFC, that's probably not it anyway.

Is your windows print driver set to optimize for portability, rather
than speed?
