[Pkg-lirc-maint] Bug#660956: /etc/init.d/lirc doesn't honor LIRCD_CONF variable in hardware.conf

Package: lirc
Version: 0.9.0~pre1-1
Severity: important
File: /etc/init.d/lirc


The instructions (as far as I can make out) say to configure lirc but
editing the configuration in /etc/lirc/hardware.conf.  However, when I set
the LIRCD_CONF variable, it is not recognized and when trying to start
lirc I get a message that it is unconfigured and will not be started.
