Nice report, I'll write a note about this method in the hylafax wiki. (Including the missed fakeroot.)

I do not follow Ubuntu release process, but I understood that Ubuntu get the latest Debian package from Debian stable when Ubuntu create a new release.

In Debian, we usually never upgrade packages unless they have security updates. So the current stable release will always have a broken hylafax. The quiet long testing period before the release should avoid such problems, but this time it didn't.

Said that, I would suggest to ask Ubuntu for an update. Debian will have a new version once a new Debian release will be ready.
