Any help here at all?

I've manually compiled lirc 0.8.1 making sure I use the "--with-transmitter"
and "--driver=serial" switches.

irrecord works fine.

This is what I'm finding in /var/log/lircd:
Mar 25 22:45:44 box lircd: caught signal
Mar 25 22:45:46 box lircd: lircd(serial) ready
Mar 25 22:45:47 box lircd: accepted new client on /dev/lircd
Mar 25 22:45:47 box lircd: error processing command: send_start 51F510
PowerToggle
Mar 25 22:45:47 box lircd: hardware does not support sending
Mar 25 22:45:47 box lircd: removed client

/dev/lircd has write permissions:
box:/var/log # ls -l /dev/lirc*
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 5 2007-03-25 22:36 /dev/lirc -> lirc0
crw-rw-rw- 1 root root 61, 0 2007-03-25 22:36 /dev/lirc0
srw-rw-rw- 1 root ir 0 2007-03-25 22:45 /dev/lircd

Where should I be looking next?
