I'm assuming you're trying to get LIRC working on a Hauppauge card since those 
use lirc_i2c.  When you emerge lirc on Gentoo, you need to pass an option.  
It should look like this:

LIRC_OPTS="--with-driver=hauppauge" emerge lirc

You can also make things easier by just adding 
LIRC_OPTS="--with-driver=hauppauge" to the end of your /etc/make.conf file so 
you can just do "emerge lirc" and not worry about it again.
