I have no idea why it's turned off by default either- but it was in the
gentoo package. Since I don't use apt-get I can't really answer your
question other than I recommened just downloading the source package- the
settings.protocol file is not the settings.pro I was referring to (it should
be in the source). It's really quite easy to compile, just follow the
instructions in the README and you should be fine- just remember to change
the settings.pro file to enable the lirc support.
