I found this instruction page: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuPackagingGuide/BuildFromDebdiff

Following those instructions, the debdiff patch appeared (I am a novice with little experience at this level) to build properly with no errors and created (appeared to be new) lirc-x_0.9.0-0ubuntu2_amd64.deb file.

The final instruction of "BuildFromDebdiff" page is to install with: sudo dpkg -i ../lirc-x_0.9.0-0ubuntu2_amd64.deb

This is the resulting output: [myuser]@mythtv01:~/lirc$ sudo dpkg -i ../lirc-x_0.9.0-0ubuntu2_amd64.deb
dpkg: error processing ../lirc-x_0.9.0-0ubuntu2_amd64.deb (--install):
 cannot access archive: No such file or directory
Errors were encountered while processing:
 ../lirc-x_0.9.0-0ubuntu2_amd64.deb

So, the patch did not work for me.
