Yes, libcdread is not found. If it were, it would be listed in the
Input dialog. Also, I checked the lfs 4.0 book and there is nothing
about modifying the owners of any of the groups that MAKEDEV creates. Is
this something I missed ? Besides, on my host system, /dev/hdc is only
accessible, rw, to root and xmms does play CD's there.

My error. The libcdread is under /usr/X11R6/lib/xmms/Input.
ls -l /usr/X11R6/lib/xmms/Input gives the following:

However, xmms does not find or list it.
My own opinion is that the cause of both libcdaudio and libcdread not
working are the same but I do not have the knowledge to understand what
