I have vague recollections of the 'all' option getting fixed in recent
cvs, don't remember what the exact problem was though. You can just
build in two passes, first do a build w/imon, install lirc_imon.ko,
then do a build w/udp and install everything. At least, I'm reasonably
sure that should work. I rarely do anything but a
--with-driver=userspace build from lirc sources, I maintain the
drivers elsewhere in a git tree (which I also use to patch the lirc
drivers into the Fedora kernels).
