Was going to say I couldn't find it, but thanks for the pointer to lirc-0.7
(I'd checked the kernel first). For those who are looking, there is a patch
to lirc-0.7 series here:

Which is used by Gentoo when you emerge lirc. 0.7.0 is the current stable
version of LIRC, but 0.7.1 is marked for testing, however the patch doesn't
get applied to 0.7.1 and LIRC haven't adopted the driver so you'd have to
make sure you get 0.7.0. Also it checks to see if you are running on an xbox
before specifically compiling the xboxusb driver -- it should still compile
if you just 'emerge lirc' otherwise you need to set
LIRC_OPTS="--with-driver=xboxusb" before emerging...

I'll check this out later in the week, thanks for the pointer.
