Just clarifying terminology. You didn't "install" iguanaIR into LIRC,
you built LIRC with support for iguanaIR devices, as reflected by
lircd saying supported drivers: iguanaIR. I think you're fine here.
Though I do wonder if perhaps you needed to build it with libusb1-dev
packages installed to get it built against the proper libusb. Now that
I think about it, that actually seems fairly likely the root of the
problem here -- you likely couldn't have built a package that would
properly function w/libusb1 w/o having libusb1 headers to build
against. I'd rebuild after you get the appropriate bits installed.
