It depends on the distro you're using and whether you installed it from a
package or built it from a tarball you downloaded yourself.  If you
installed a package, there should be a script that init can run to start
lircd; on Gentoo, for instance, it's /etc/init.d/lircd and it's set to run
in the default runlevel with rc-update add lircd default.  If you built a
tarball, there should be a script that init can run that will start
user-provided binaries; on Gentoo, it's /etc/init.d/local, which calls
/etc/conf.d/local.start and /etc/conf.d/local.stop at the appropriate times;
you would put a command to start lircd in local.start and a command to stop
it in local.stop.  The particular details for other distros will most likely
be different, but they shouldn't be too different (except for Slackware).
