Just to pipe in, I have followed the advice here and I have the grey
remote working with xine.

The './configure' script may be looking for the LIRC headers and/or
library in a particular location, and when it doesn't find it there it
assumes you don't have LIRC on your system, and doesn't build in
support. You man need to do something like:
("CFLAGS" might be "CXXFLAGS" or "CPPFLAGS", depending on your system/
then run ./configure and see what happens.
Also, you can examine config.log after running the ./configure script
and maybe see why (if) it's failing the test for LIRC...
