I already had a cdrtools package (since maybe Sept. 2004). And my xcdroast 
simply got rid of the dependency for the cdrecord-xcdroast. It has been a 
while (but was still cdrtools-2.01), but I used xcdroast to burn a few 
audio CDs and to rip tracks from audio CDS.

The README says:

   X-CD-Roast looks for the cdrtools first in $PREFIX/lib/xcdroast-0.98/bin 
   ($PREFIX is /usr/local if you dont changed it) and if it does not find
   them it tries $PREFIX/bin (or whatever you configured as cdrtools-prefix).

   Don't make links to the cdrtools because then the activation of the 
   non-root-mode will fail. Please copy the binaries instead. 

Just changing the DEPENDS is good enough.
