Just syncing is of course the first, minimal step. But bottom line is 
that a lirc user could set the (typically secondary) device to anything, 
it's just a config file. So a compile-time setting will not make in the 
long run. Other apps e. g., mythTV has it as a runtime configuration, 
and that's the proper patch be it a part of a config file, the menu 
system or an environment variable.

It's only a fraction of the lirc users which doesn't use 
/run/lirc/lircd, but a fraction is not zerao.
