[mythtv-users] FC-4 installation - Are these dead symlinks wrong?

I'm working on getting the remote control to work on my FC-4 
installation (Jarods guide, very nice).  I don't think lircd is starting 
properly.  Could this be the reason?

# /sbin/chkconfig --list | grep lirc
lircd           0:off   1:off   2:on    3:on    4:on    5:on    6:off

Using "ls -color" to check each of the rc*.d directories I get this on 
each of the "on" directories.  Each is highlighted in red, which 
/etc/DIR_COLORS defines as a dead symlink.

lrwxrwxrwx  1 root 14 Dec 11 18:37 K71lirc -> ../init.d/lirc

And, /etc/init.d/ does not have a lirc file, but it does have a lircd 
file.  Should the symlink be pointing to /etc/init.d/lircd instead?  If 
so, how do I correct it?  Thanks,
