It's actually very easy. After soldering an irblaster.info Tx and a
zapway.de Rx onto the same serial connector (my Pundit-R has only 1
serial port) it runs on a single instance of LIRC. You just need to
ensure that LIRC was compiled with the 'with-transmitter' flag to
enable the use of a transmitter.
Running 2 instances of LIRC for separate Tx/Rx is also very
straightforward. I opted to go this route on a slave machine with 2
serial ports, using the ledxmit script to create a second instance of
LIRC with non-conflicting modules.
