I managed to fix the problem.  It was a udev problem.  After I updated to 
udev-162, the /dev/cdrom and /dev/dvd  symlinks to  my ide cdrom disappeared.  
I used a simple udev rule to re-create these and now cdrom sound plays in KsCD 
Kaffeine et al.

Thanks again for your  help. and if ever you want to try  an already made 
sample of cblfs on you x86_64-pc  please let me know.
