I do not rip CD's here, but the mp3c-0.31-1mdv2007.0.i586 package may provide the solution you need:
mp3c - MP3 creator for audiocds with usage of CDDB​

This program reads the TOC from audio CDs, gets the CDDB entry for it, and converts the audio tracks to mp3 or Ogg Vorbis format. (under usage of any CD grabber and encoder).

It has a comfortable text-based UI, but you can also create a shell script for automated processing of a CD.

The default settings require oggenc from the vorbis-tools package and cdparanoia.
On further investigation, do you have the lame-mp3x-3.97-2plf2007.1.i586 package installed?
lame-mp3x - MP3x analyzer for LAME

This is a graphical analyzer for lame.

This package is in PLF, as MP3 encoding is covered by software patents.
You may want to start by installing the lame-mp3x package and any requested dependencies. If that does not get things working, then try the other package I mentioned. IIUC, the mp3c package contains the mp3 encoder.
