As Brian pointed out, you don't want to do this.

lircd.conf maps the singals from your remote to button names.
.lircrc maps button names to commands (e.g. for MythTV, xine, mplayer)

I also highly doubt you want link link /dev/lirc to /dev/lircd.
Normally you would want to link /dev/lirc to /dev/lirc0.
