Whenever I'm dealing with slightly nonstandard libraries or kernel
versions in the Fedora/Redhat world I've found your best bet may be to
build your own. I've actually had pretty good luck with using SRPM's
for this if it's just one or two isolated packages that I can't get
binaries for that match my exact distro.
Assuming you have the compiler and build dependencies installed
(kernel source package too), just grab the lirc SRPM from your
preferred repo and issue "rpmbuild --rebuild <package-file.rpm>" which
will automatically build it for your architecture and link against the
libs that you have. Assuming all goes well you'll have installable
binaries which you can just install normally with "rpm -i".
