cdrecord -scanbus

provides (as root):
Cdrecord 1.9 (i386-unknown-netbsd1.5.2) Copyright (C) 1995-2000 Jorg Schilling
cdrecord: No such file or directory. Cannot open SCSI driver.
cdrecord: For possible targets try 'cdrecord -scanbus'. Make sure you are root.

After poking around with it for awhile, setting "CDR_DEVICE=/dev/rcd0d:@,0"
in "/etc/default/cdrecord" made it work wonderfully. I don't know if I was
doing something wrong or what, but this worked for me.
