Well, I didn't know somebody was patching it, so I started using the 
following in (not exactly as below) instead of 'dagrab':

dd if=/dev/acd0t01 ibs=2352 obs=2048 | sox -t raw -r 44100 \
-s -c 2 -w - -t wav -r 44100 -s -c 2 -w track01.wav

Funny thing is, it is a hell of a lot faster than dagrab was.  Before, 
dagrab would read the data in at about the same rate as flac would encode 
it, but now I can rip a 12 track disc in the time it takes flac to encode 
the first 6 tracks.  Go figure...

If anyone is interested in the exact changes that I made to use 'dd', as 
well as jacking in flac, let me know.  Nothing special as I am not a 
programmer at all, but I am managing thanks to your help.

perl -e 'print unpack("u","88V]N=&%C=\"!I;F9O(&EN(&AE861E<G,*");'
