How is this visible to the end user wether cdda was enabled or not?
Meaning, will end-users suffer immensly from lost functionality because
I hadn't installed cdparanoia on the build-server?

Yes, it uses a silent check , but not a verbose one where this is
actually displayed. As a package maintainer its quite annoying when
dependencies aren't documented except in the configure scripts, and then
finding that this isn't easily disabled.

(yes, I know that I can edit config.h, add an
AM_CONDITIONAL(HAVE_CDDA,false) at the end or remove the actual check,
but thats not "easy" )

Okay, so the check is against /dev/cdrom for detection of what is in the
physical drive (since audio-cd's cannot be mounted) , am I correct here?
