Okay.  It's good to know there's a reason :-)

I'll give that a shot, but since I can't build from the source
tarball, I'm skeptical I'll be able to make your suggestion work :-(

To complicate things, I don't have internet access at home.  I've
downloaded http://rpm.livna.org/fedora/3/i386/RPMS.testing/kernel-module-devel-2.6.11-1.27_FC3-0.8-0.lvn.1.3.i386.rpm,
and http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/extras/3/SRPMS/lirc-0.7.1-1.src.rpm
and I'll try the command you mention above.

Wish me luck!
