[mythtv-users] Lirc Broken After Kernel Upgrade

I running Myth on Gentoo.  I upgraded from 2.6.13-r5 to 2.6.14-r5 using 
gentoo-sources.  I noticed lirc was not working after the upgrade.  I 
tried rebuilding it but lirc 0.7.2 (the same version I was using before) 
fails to build.  I have no idea what's wrong and haven't found anything 
via Google.  Any ideas?

You will have to use the lirc_i2c kernel module.

Now enter 'make' and 'make install' to compile and install the package.
