Finally got all of my ports installed and re-booted with the DVD
installed. Sorry to have taken so long, but rebuilding over 1600 ports
on an old, slow laptop takes a lot of time and I had to tweak several
port to get them to build.

With the modified scsi_interface.c file you sent, cdparanoia seems to
be working just fine.


Should I submit a PR with the new file?
