You'll find MaximumRPM will have taught you a whole lot you didn't need to
know (not that this is a bad thing).  In this case, it really should have been
a case of:

yum install lame
wget src.rpm
rpmbuild --rebuild src.rpm
rpm -Uvh --force shiny-new-binary.rpm

No twiddling with the spec file was required, as it already auto-detected the
presence of lame.
