It builds fine and it works fine too
try switch to root and run xcdroast -n
you will then have to reconfigure your application to work for non-root user

On my desktop, it does failed to scan the device automatically, but it
worked when i used the manual scanning process by entering /dev/cdrom
and it found my DVD-RW drive :)
