Are you aware of the frequent HEAD builds that Axel makes at
atrpms.net? See http://atrpms.net/dist/fc6/mythtv-trunk/ for more

Are you using the atrpms.net MythTV specfile or the one available from
the MythTV wiki? If you're using 'latest' packages for a Fedora build,
I'd use Axel's current specfile.

Have you tried downloading the RPMs and installing them directly?

lirc-lib-devel is probably what you want to install - again, it
depends on which spec file you are using. The atrpms.net specfile uses
this, and not lirc-devel. You might find the other problems go away
too if you change specfile.
