block when emerging hylafax


I am trying to install hylafax, and I have the mgetty flag set. When giving the command emerge -puv hylafax I get this:
Code:
Calculating dependencies... done!
[ebuild  N    ] app-text/texlive-core-2008-r5  USE="X doc -source -tk"

[ebuild  N    ] net-misc/hylafax-4.4.4-r2  USE="html jbig mgetty pam"
[blocks B     ] net-misc/hylafax ("net-misc/hylafax" is blocking net-dialup/mgetty-1.1.36-r3)

 * Error: The above package list contains packages which cannot be
 * installed at the same time on the same system.

  ('ebuild', '/', 'net-misc/hylafax-4.4.4-r2', 'merge') pulled in by
    net-misc/hylafax


For more information about Blocked Packages, please refer to the following
section of the Gentoo Linux x86 Handbook (architecture is irrelevant):

http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/handbook/handbook-x86.xml?full=1#blocked
I have tried using emerge -C hylafax to clear this issue and this is what I get:
Code:
--- Couldn't find 'null/hylafax' to unmerge.

>>> No packages selected for removal by unmerge
I have also tried installing without the mgetty flag, uninstalling, adding the mgetty flag again, and then try to install hylafax, but I still get the same block.

Does anyone know how to resolve this issue?

When you say "-mgetty" do you mean to remove the flag? If so, Hylafax does install without it, but I need mgetty.

Ok, but doesnt Hylafax need mgetty to talk to the modem? Is there another program or way to get hylafax to talk to the modem if so? Aside issue with hylafax and I am not sure if its related to mgetty(I doubt it is). When I try to logon to the hylafax server with a windows client it always refuses the connection no matter what user I use.
