I haven't done this before, but since your repetition of this has stirred
my sympathy...

Look at bin/faxrcvd.  The invocation syntax is this:

# faxrcvd file devID commID error-msg

which means that $2 is your beloved device ID to use in the script.  Later
on, faxrcvd seems to name this $DEVICE.

Unfortunately for your desires, the file is *already* stored in recvq
*before* faxrcvd is invoked.  Which means that you'll need to modify
faxgetty or faxmodem... or change your game plan a bit.

So looking at the default faxrcvd, you could add this around line 72...

NEWFILE=`echo $FILE | sed 's/recvq/recvq_$DEVICE/g'`;

and then configure your system and HylaFAX client to handle things
