(using faxmodem and faxstate)

If you wanted to use faxgetty you could use faxconfig, although in 
practice I've never seen it done.

faxconfig -m devid ModemReadyState D

My tests don't show this to work, though.  It falls into "Server" 
parameters rather than "Modem" parameters, and that may be the issue.  Not 
sure there... for that matter I'm not even sure faxconfig works at all.

So if this doesn't work you'd have to alter the config.devid file and 
restart the faxgetty process. :-(
