The lirc_serial driver needs some information from the kernel
sources to compile. It looks in /usr/src/linux for this.
If you don't have usr/src/linux, then install the kernel src
rpm that matches the kernel. If you have it, then run:
make oldconfig from there. This generates the needed config
file. I'm pretty sure this is all you need.
