Not at all.  Not a thing.  Really don't know who is doing what or if 
there is something else I am doing wrong.

Not only is AAH 2.8 based on Centos 4.3, but Asterfax is being put on 
top of that and it uses spandsp....

I **think** I am the only one trying this to a SIP attached fax, 
rather than a zaptel attached fax.  And it MIGHT have something to do 
with improper codec negotiation.  I have to put ethereal on the line 
and dig there.

Just not getting answers from either the AAH or Asterfax list.  And 
nothing from soft-switch.org (source for spandsp and comment about libdiff)....

Just keep on digging...
