I believe the libcddb external API between 0.9.5 and 0.9.6 is exactly
the same and basically a wrapper was put around iconv. (However I
can't vouch for the fact that cddax in fact uses libcddb with UTF-8
correctly :-)

When I look at the installed library shared object number, 0.1.1, "current"
and "age" both remain the same and "revision" changed from 0 to 1
which means (if I interpret this correctly and if it was done
correctly) that the library source code has changed, but no interfaces
have been added, removed, or changed.

I didn't have any problem compiling libcddb. In fact, some of the
regression tests that had been failing on 0.9.5 now don't.

I think the 70 minutes refers to vlc (which is about the same time it
takes on my machine) not libcddb.  It may even be that no vlc
recompilation is necessary!  Painless! When I run:

  ldd libcddax_plugin.so

I get:
  libpthread.so.0 => /lib/tls/libpthread.so.0 (0x00fad000)
  libcddb.so.0 => /usr/local/lib/libcddb.so.0 (0x00852000)
  libcdio.so.0 => /usr/local/lib/libcdio.so.0 (0x00940000)
  libm.so.6 => /lib/tls/libm.so.6 (0x00326000)
  libc.so.6 => /lib/tls/libc.so.6 (0x00111000)
  /lib/ld-linux.so.2 => /lib/ld-linux.so.2 (0x005bf000)

So assuming 
  libcddb.so.0 -> libcddb.so.0.1.1

you should be fine.
