If you have an ATAPI burner you can easily burn CDs from the command 
line using mkisofs to generate a disc image and then the "burncd" 
utility that comes with even a basic install of FreeBSD. See below for 
the most simple example:

mkisofs -o nameofimage.iso pathtofile
burncd -f /dev/acd0 data pathtofile nameoffile.iso fixate

Of course, that still doesn't answer our question.
