HylaFAX itself doesn't know anything about LDAP.  But it is PAM aware,
which means that PAM can be doing LDAP on it's behalf.

The only "pam aware" part of HylaFAX is hfaxd.  And it simply requests
PAM to authenticate  whatever user the client gives to it.  Turning up
hfaxd logging should show you what's trying to log in as "faxadmin"

But faxgetty surely doesn't use PAM directly... So unless you've got NSS
setup to do LDAP on standarge getpwname/getpwuid it's *not* faxgetty.
