Just default to Ogg and add a dependency on vorbis-tools. It's not sure
that a locally installed MP3 encoder package built by anyone anywhere does
provide mp3-encoder (if it's a Debian package - and I bet most people have
their MP3 encoder simply installed under /usr/local).

BTW: That's also what abcde (another program that does the same as jack)
