Sorry, there seems to have been a miscommunication. The svn code is
supposed to work with Debian Sid, not Squeeze.

That part is handled not by LIRC, but the kernel. In current kernels
(I'm not sure starting when but definitely in 2.6.36 and later) ir
support is included in the kernel without any additional modules. The
newer LIRC user space code is designed to work with that. Debian Sid
is on 2.6.37 as of the last time I checked.
