just do this:

1. in your ardour session, t "snap to" to cd frames
2. drag out ranges in the "range markers" timeline, corresponding to 
track beginnings/endings -- make sure the first track starts at 0 and 
the last track marker, the end of audio and the end marker are all at 
the same place, and snapped to a cd frame.
3. open the locations window, and in the bottom half (the range markers 
portion), check the cd checkboxes for your song range markers, and fill 
in titles, performers, composers, isrc - note that the overall cd title 
is taken from the session name
4. export the session to a 16-bit wav, making sure the cd marker file 
type is set to "cue" in the export window.
5. do: cdrecord -cuefile=/path/filename.cue -dao  (where filename.cue is 
the cue file you wrote in the session export)
