I take it that you are building from source?

Ignore the BSD part about editing the setup.cache file, you aren't using

(something like this should work on your system, I'm not guaranteeing it

Most likely the script you need to start at boot is in /etc/init.d/ and is
called hylafax. To have hylafax start on boot, I think you want to do:

cd /etc/init.d
chkconfig --add hylafax
chkconfig --level 35 hylafax

To start it do:  /etc/init.d/hylafax start

Yes, you will need a 3rd party client from section 5.
