There seems to be an error in configure in recent svn's.
Configure sets/unsets all the variables passed to it (or its defaults)
starting at about line 600.

Down around line 1970 it tests for the lirc library and/or the lirc
header. Between lirc and mythtv I think that the source where
lirc_client.h resides is wrong.

As a result has_lirc_header always returns 'lirc' set to 'no'
I change the test result to force it back to 'yes'. 

I notice that the most recent svn 8158 has a line "#include
<lirc/lirc_client.h>" in the configure script at that point, but I don't
know where it looking. Definitely not at PREFIX/lirc/...that does not
