Good ol' MS-DOS will do it.  The command
for %f in (*.rom) do makewav -switches %f
will run Makewav on each file that matches *.rom .  (make sure to
replace -switches with whatever switches makewav needs.)

For CD audio format, you will need to convert Makewav's waves to 44
KHz 16-bit stereo audio from whatever its default format is.  I know
Cool Edit Pro for Win9x has a batch mode that'll do that sort of
thing, if your CD authoring program doesn't do it for you.

All this is on a Wintel platform though... I can't help but notice
that "Applescript" you mentioned, so it might be that nothing I've
said will help... :)
