Andriy I'm having the same issues using KDE under FreeBSD. I'm using
dolphin from time to time to rip & encode my audio CDs to flacs, but I
can't ever recall to rip audio tracks under Freebsd's Amarok. I
remember that few versions of Amarok2 under Linux had the same
problem. A lot of working features got lost during transmission from
qt3->qt4 and kde3->kde4. I remeber reading on http://amarok.kde.org
long time ago that playing/ripping audio CDs won't be implemented in
Amarok2 as none of developers owns such discs. Few months later I
managed to rip cd's with Amarok (I never managed to play audio cd
under Debian or Arch Linux). Since KDE4 playing/ripping had been
neglected feature in kde.

I'd would be really happy if I'd manage to run EAC under wine on
FreeBSDs, as it would solve most problems using I've been experiencing
in *NIX world.
