If you use efax-gtk to send faxes, it calls efax with a "-u"
flag, which version 0.9 does not know. According to the source
of efax-gtk, it is to force UTF-8 text input.
Near that place it is also suggested that the efax version
should be 0.9a instead of the 0.9 which we have in pkgsrc.
There appears to be a newer version of efax included in the
distfile efax-gtk-3.0.6.src.tgz, and it differs significantly
from the efax-0.9 source.
Try to send fax with efax-gtk.
See a "usage" message instead of a fax transmission.
You can use a front-end script in the path to filter out the
build and install the efax as included in efax-gtk.
