Looking at the source of AN-2.01.01a64, it says:

NOTE: cdrtools is currently in a state just before a new major release.

Actually, this was input at AN-2.01.01a41 (June 08), but there have been 9 
updates this year.  Perhaps we should add a note to the book that the latest 
betas are clean, but also wait another month or two to see if a new release is made.

I'm in the same position in LFS.  I'd like to update to GRUB2, but I'm waiting 
for a full release.
