I checked out:

1) ecawave - seems no longer supported
2) sox - the manual page doesn't seem to have anything about splitting?
3) afsp - seems the top google hits are dead links

I didn't look into the relationship between ecawave and ecasound - is
ecasound perhaps a maintained version of ecawave?

Anyway, I built a copy of audacity, which seemed fine for splitting a
file into two parts, but it'd still be nice to have some sort of program
that can automatically split an 8 hour recording into CD-sized chunks.
