ffmpeg install used ./configure no libmp3lame support


I have installed ffmpeg both from the medibuntu repositories and from the instructions here https://wiki.ubuntu.com/ffmpeg following both methods it shows. However it seems I cannot get past the "Unknown codec 'libmp3lame'" error.

I am sort of out of ideas. This is the line I using to test ffmpeg.
Code:
ffmpeg -i /home/flebber/Tovid/meg11-001.vob -f mpeg -vcodec h264 -b 800k -g 300 -bf 2 -acodec libmp3lame -ab 128k /home/flebber/Tovid/trial.mpg
This is the output from it.
Code:
flebber@flebber-desktop:~$ ffmpeg -i /home/flebber/Tovid/meg11-001.vob -f mpeg -vcodec h264 -b 800k -g 300 -bf 2 -acodec libmp3lame -ab 128k /home/flebber/Tovid/trial.mpg

Any Ideas ?

It worked for me with a test file (though I had to change the video codec). Are you absolutely sure you have liblame installed on your system?

Indeed it is installed. I have found that I just have to use a different encoder so the working command for me would be
Code:
ffmpeg -i /home/flebber/Tovid/meg11-001.vob -f mpeg -vcodec h264 -b 800k -g 300 -bf 2 -acodec mp3 -ab 128k /home/flebber/Tovid/trial.mpg
