Just noticed that  your  question is  still
unanswered .. I advocated efax as well when
this thread was started.

NO,  efax does not need a background daemon/
server. It  directly  dials and sends fax in  
Class 1&2 modems. The interaction is through
command line only ..

For example, to dial the number 633222 using
tone dialing and send a  two-page  fax  from  
the TIFF/G3 files letter.001 and  letter.002  
using a Class 1 fax modem connected to ttyS0
just type in:
    efax -d /dev/ttyS0 -o1 \
         -t T633222 letter.001 letter.002
And there are  similar one liners which will
retreive fax for you too ..... The man pages
are adequate to get you going quickly ..
