Thanks guys. I've got around the problem by firing up an older Ubuntu 
box. I had installed Lame but the difference seems to be the file 
libmp3lame.so.0 in /usr/lib/. I'll have another look when I've got a bit 
more time. I guess it shows how good Linux automation of installs has 
got that I'm surprised at having to do a bit of manual config.
