Those programs are usually in the spool/hylafax/bin directory,
and are not a part of the ordinary system PATH variable,
but during the original HylaFAX configuration, they can be located 

However, you may want to convert a PostScript file directly to TIFF
using ghostscript, which is what ps2fax does, and then manually 
submit the TIFF file to sendfax.
