Although it's fine to know how to build debs for lame there is a simpler
deb http://marillat.free.fr/ unstable main
deb-src http://marillat.free.fr/ unstable main
to your /etc/apt/sources.list (replace "unstable" with whatever
debian-version you're using). Then do a "dselect update" and you have
plenty nice packages concerning mp3 on your fingertips. Make sure that
it's legal for you to use these packages in your country (the server is
in france, afaik it's pretty legal there, as well as here in germany).
Keep in mind that those packages are not officially supported by the
debian distribution, as Christian Marililat is an official debian
developer, they are - as far as I can tell - of good quality
(You find these and other unofficial apt sources in the "unofficial apt
sources" section of www.debianplanet.org).
