It's a make problem on my system.  USE_LIRC is not defined in the 
Makefile in the mythfrontend directory:

CFLAGS   = -pipe -march=k8 -Wall -W -g -D_REENTRANT  -DMMX 
-DPREFIX=\"/usr/local\" -DLIBDIR=\"/usr/local/lib\" -DUSING_XV 

Going over to libs/libmyth we have:

CFLAGS   = -pipe -march=k8 -Wall -W -g -D_REENTRANT -DPIC -fPIC  -DMMX 
-DPREFIX=\"/usr/local\" -DLIBDIR=\"/usr/local/lib\" -DUSING_OSS 

Which has USE_LIRC.

Anyone have thoughts as to why this might be?
