For ripping CDs to mp3, I've used jack.  abcde is another similar program - 
they're both frontends to your ripper/encoder pair of choice.  (I happen 
to use cdparanoia and lame.)  jack (and I think abcde as well) can also 
encode to ogg.

If you're just encoding .wav files (and not ripping them from a CD as 
well), I'm not sure what the best tool would be.  I'd probably just use 
lame, but probably because I don't know any better.

A suite for what?  Ogg playback/encoding/etc.?  vorbis-tools provides basic 
commands commands for that (ogg123 and oggenc) - no fancy interface, but 
mp3blaster will play oggs, I think.

An expert is someone who knows more and more about less and less.
