Thanks for the information. After a little more research, I installed
the packages Kdemultimedia, kdemultimedia-dev, kio-audiocd, and
kio-audiocd-dev. I then rebuilt Tellico. Now after entering the album
info in K3b I was able to import it in Tellico.

I'll give this a try the next time I'm ready to add a multi-disc album
not available at MusicBrainz.
