	The package doesn't support creating mp3 files for legal reasons,
but if you build the port and enable the LAME option then you can encode
mp3s with ffmpeg. Alternatively you can build the lame port decode to pcm
(or wav) and then encode with lame.

	I'm fairly sure that all the mp3 encoders require building ports
for legal reasons.
