[vox-tech] Binary problems

I have downloaded a commercial fax program (free version, for
evaluation).  It is in binary (i.e. *.bin).  I have permissions set to
execute (100755).  

It will not run, even as "sh primafax_l.bin".

strace gives me the following (in part - hope the wrapping does not confuse):

open("primafax_l.bin", O_RDONLY|O_LARGEFILE) = 4
ioctl(4, TCGETS, 0xbffff79c)            = -1 ENOTTY (Inappropriate ioctl for device)
_llseek(4, 0, [0], SEEK_CUR)            = 0
read(4, "\177ELF\1\1\1\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\2\0\3\0\1\0\0\0\260\200"..., 80) = 80
write(2, "primafax_l.bin: primafax_l.bin: "..., 59primafax_l.bin: primafax_l.bin: cannot execute binary file
) = 59

I presume it cannot find the proper tty.  At the moment I have ttyS0
and ttyS1 designated elsewhere, so this may be the problem.  I tried
to set them to mgetty through inittab, but this had no impact.

I'd be grateful for any ideas.  Google, so far, has been un-helpful.
