The backend (on Slackware) is in /usr/lib/cups/backend/, and the ppd is 
in /usr/share/cups/model/ .  Also, while I don't know about Hylafax, I 
do have eFax working with fax4CUPS, using a USRobotics serial fax modem. 
  With the eFax backend and package, you *must* edit the backend script 
for your installation of efax.

Hope that helps some.
