It's not available as a package due to patent issues. You'll need to
build it from ports.

cd /usr/ports/audio/lame/ && make install clean

I doubt if you'll find a legitimate package anywhere. Even if you do
you'll very likely run into dependency conflicts if it's an old
version. Building from ports is the way to go.
