Create a symbolic link '/usr/lib/' to '/usr/lib/*' (similiar file).

for example:
# ls /usr/lib/*
# ln -s /usr/lib/ /usr/lib/

And do the same thing to libmusicbrainz.

But you can make the KDE mp3 library enabled more smartly.
Freshrpms' package 'lame' includes
and libmusicbrainz package is in Fedora core2. (libmusicbrainz-2.0.2-7.1.i386.rpm)
So all you have to do is rebuild kdemultimedia and install these 2 RPMs.
