I start lircd with a command-line option specifying the device.
On my debian system, this happens in /etc/init.d/lirc :

=== SNIP ===
case "$1" in
     echo -n "Starting lirc daemon: lircd"
     start-stop-daemon --start --quiet --exec /usr/local/sbin/lircd -- 
     echo -n " lircmd"
     start-stop-daemon --start --quiet --exec /usr/local/sbin/lircmd
     echo "."
=== SNIP ===
