Okay, I haven't investigated whether or not lirc_serial was compiled,
and if so whether it was compiled with --with-transmitter, but simply
adding the --device option gives me the following:

$ irsend --device=/dev/lirc0 SEND_ONCE dish 3
irsend: could not connect to socket
irsend: Permission denied

Does this reveal anything interesting? I do have a functioning
/dev/lirc0 and remote receiver setup.
