I did compile the cdrecord 2.01a37 on my machine no later than
I was running my kernel, and make says :
GNU Make version 3.79.1, by Richard Stallman and Roland McGrath.
Built for i386-redhat-linux-gnu

Build process was really fine, no error was reported, and I don't have
any smake stuff on my machine :

smake: Command not found.

Seems to be only related to the -clone option if you look at the code,
and it indicates the feature has been compile :
error("\t-clone Write disk in clone write mode.\n");
