[tex-live] dvi2fax tool not working

For some tests with old file formats I stumbled upon the dvi2fax tool
that is part of my texlive installation (on Gentoo).

However it doesn't seem to work:
$ dvi2fax foo.dvi 
Unknown device: dfaxhigh

It seems to me that this is just a frontend for dvips and is using some
parameter that dvips doesn't understand.

Is this:
* Something wrong/missing in my installation
* A bug
* A feature that was removed from dvips, but it was forgotten to remove
  the command line wrapper that comes with it?
