Have you checked the README and INSTALL files included within the tarball to ensure you have the prerequisite packages installed? Looks like Lame and aalib aren't installed....

Just incase they've installed themselves somewhere "non-standard", have you tried searching your filesystem for the required files?

find / \( -name "libaa.so.1" -o -name "libmp3lame.so.0" \) -print

If found are these files in your LD_LIBRARY_PATH?

Depending on distro if you use something like apt or yum it should resolve your dependencies for you.....

Cheers
