Package: efax
Version: 1:0.9a-9
Severity: normal

If you want an .efaxrc in a location other than defaults in /usr/bin/fax - 
e.g. ~/FAX/.efarc - redefining CONFIGFILES in /etc/efaxrc, fax won't load it.
Either remove CONFIGFILES from system/user configurable variables, or apply
e.g. the following patch:

--- fax.0.9a-13	Sat Apr 19 00:00:00 2003
+++ fax	Fri Jun 20 07:57:05 2003

+  for f in $CONFIGFILES
+  do
 	if [ -r $f ]
 		. $f

this applies to Sarge's version as well.
