Since this is a very old and well known issue, and it seems there is no
one left solcing/developing this tool, it should be removed from the
source tree for the time it is to said broken.
burncd had some nice advantages over cdrecord: it came from the BSD
tree, it had capabilities for burning DVD+RW images. Disadvantage was
the limitation to ATA interface.
Someone should suggest the stripp off the sources via PR?
