Thanks carl for your inputs.

I had installed first lame-dev but it did not work.

Then I installed libmp3lame-dev ...... it worked. 

But still I have question absout what is the difference between
lame-dev and libmp3lame-dev. Ultimately lame is the software
who deals with audio. So, why at the time of installing 
lame-dev ...... my stuff did not work !

Why are you using --disable-yasm ?
It is a very bad idea.

You have to install the development package 
of libmp3lame. (lame-devel or similar, 
depending on your distribution)
