yes, this is exactly the case.  and I'm not a die-hard Apple fan.
I like the way this hardware looks like and I remember the times when
the 68000 was the academic example of how to construct a microprocessor
while the Intels were the counterexample.  yet, I've always been using
PCs until last february.  I have really an extremely limited knowledge
of what is behind this screen and I hardly have any idea of what some
questions in the kernel configuration are refering to.

anyhow: as Guido already pointed out, the module loads and works perfectly,
I'm curious to see if it can be loaded by default instead of ir-usb and
what other steps are stricly necessary and automatizable at boot time to
make syncronization a fairly simple task.

many thanks for the prompt reply!
