This is how I start lircd serever
lircd -H pinsys -d /dev/cuad0 -p 644
I compile it with pinsys support (this is my remote), not with irman
(as in ports).
When started it will create the sockets. lirc need the same stuff as
in linux, except that not all drivers that are supported under linux
are ported in freebsd.
