Is there any elegant way to extract the label of a CD in FreeBSD 5.x ?

I can use dd to get to it, but it's far from elegant. Wondering if there
is some ioctl to do it cleanly; maybe even something in ports.

If anyone is curious, this is how I'm doing it now:
-$ dd if=/dev/acd0a bs=64k |strings -a |head -n 3 |tail -n 1    

I don't think it's safe to assume that it's always on the 3rd line, but
that seems to be the case quite often.
