Well cdrecord and growisofs both work great under 2.6, although neither
does the bin.cue and other disc at once stuff that cdrdao does. I
wouldn't call cdrdao essential for cd burning at least.
Now as for why it isn't there, I don't know. apt-get source cdrdao
seems to work on debian-pure64 at least, although apt-cache shows no
package for it.
After trying to build it, it appears it doesn't have a RULES file for
building the scsilib on x86_64 so it fails the build. I will take a
quick look at it to see if the solution is obvious.
cdrecord uses a symlink from i586-linux-gcc.rul to x86_64-linux-gcc.rul
and from i586-linux-cc.rul to x86_64-linux-cc.rul, so doing the same for
cdrdao should work too. It appears to since building works.
So to get a package for cdrdao do this:
apt-get source cdrdao
ln -s i586-linux-cc.rul x86_64-linux-cc.rul
ln -s i586-linux-gcc.rul x86_64-linux-gcc.rul
dpkg-buildpackage -us -uc -b
dpkg -i cdrdao*deb
