Did some more thoughtful watching of the build process, and I think I
found the issue.
This code in the install rule in debian/rules:
for file in `find debian/tmp/usr/src/modules/lirc -name Makefile`; \
do sed -e'/configure\.in/,/CONFIG_HEADERS/D' \
-e'/^CC *=/d' -e '/^KERNEL_LOCATION *=/d' \
$$file >$$file.tmp && \
cp $$file.tmp $$file; \
especially the first delete command in the sed call. That matches most
of the Makefile and removes it! It looks like in older versions of
lirc, that matched a much smaller segment of the makefile that was
concerned with updating the makefile, and had not been quite accurate as
Looking at the Makefile, using am__depfiles_maybe in place of
CONFIG_HEADERS should work for the intended function.
... tests ...
It produces a proper looking makefile, and was able to build my lirc
modules (stremzap) against linux 188.8.131.52.
