I can't find libburn 0.7.5 tarball, so I assume you mean
svn co http://svn.libburnia-project.org/libburn/trunk

I added debian-bsd people in CC, hopefully they can test that for us.

I also only though of CAM support and got the impression that is shouldn't be
different than __FreeBSD__, as described at:
"Applications running on the system use generic Operating System services
(read, write, ioctl) to access peripheral devices without needing to know the
specific SCSI commands required to perform these actions."
Though, I might be missing something.

--enable-libcdio is still marked as experimental in configure.ac? But, yes it
has been already ported to kfreebsd-amd64 and kfreebsd-i386, so our eventual
kfreebsd testers could test that as well.
