# mythbackend --version
# mythfrontend --version
will tell you if native LIRC support has been compiled in. The
frontend log will also show some LIRC output when started up, mine
(using recent SVN) shows:
2007-02-04 04:39:32.700 lirc init success using configuration file:
I would imagine native LIRC support would be compiled into all
precompiled binaries - MythTV is pretty crippled without it, and most
online HOWTO's take it for granted the support is there when
configuring your lircrc file.
