For whatever reason, a make clean && make && make install fixed it....

Now I'm getting the 'unrecognized key' issue....  Is there an example 
lircrc file anywhere that has all of the keysyms that myth uses?  The 
one that ships with SVN uses irexec, which isn't what I am looking for.  
I am looking for native support (unless that's been deprecated?)
