Well, that means that there is only one driver compiled into lircd.
"default" seems to be the one used by all the drivers requiring kernel
modules (including the lirc_serial module), so it seems that it was
compiled correctly (as you said).
However, mode2 is connecting to a device (by default /dev/lirc) which is
either associated with a different driver or at least not associated
with the serial driver. Are you running multiple instances of lircd or
using a different device? If so, you'll need to specify the appropriate
device for mode2 (i.e. "mode2 --device=/dev/lirc1" or "mode2
--device=/dev/lirc/0" or whatever).
What does lsmod give you? Are there any other LIRC kernel modules
