You should look into the sources subdirectory which is a git submodule.
This means that it has an independent set of remotes. Just add a new
remote pointing to lirc's repository, fetch the master branch and check
it out. Then rebuild the package in the parent directory.

If you want something stable master is probably not what you want.
Instead, use the release-0_9_4 branch which updated with point fixes.

Cheers!

Thanks for the quick reply! The problem is I got that Arduino usb IR
Bengt suggested working but there's some kind of latency/lag issue. He
suggested I test with the --immediate-init lircd option, but that
doesn't exist in 0.9.4 apparently. I did find it in 0.9.5-devel
though. I really hope this will work. If so, I read it might be
possible to actually make an Arduino-based IR receiver that works over
ethernet rather than usb. That would be perfect for my setup!

Not a really big issue, you can also invoke (for example)

$ irsend list "" ""

directly after start (or similar with IrScrutinizer).

Sometimes wishes come true! Watch this channel.

In the meantime, you can try to compile AGirs (not GirsLite) with the
options ETHERNET, SERVER, SESSION, DONT_REPORT_DECODES. I recommend a
Mega2560.
