the exact lame command ecasound uses to encode mp3 can be configured
in .ecasound/ecasoundrc. Have a look at this file (and man ecsaoundrc)
and find out whether this command also fails when issued on the command
line. Maybe ecasound cannot find lame in its path. You could try to add
the absolute path to ecasoundrc.
