I would first of all recommend getting at least lame 3.87; it makes a lame
library for you, and if I recall correctly, it also installs the header
file in the right place.

In your case, lame.h is in the dir you mentioned (root/lame3.70) because
that's where you unpacked the source ;)

If 3.87 does not install the header file in the usual location
(which would probably be /usr/local/include, or (slightly less likely)
/usr/local/include/lame, both in case for a source install), you can copy
it there manually, because that's where it should end up anyway - only the
lame people have historically been better at writing code than packaging.

If you don't want to do that, copying that lame.h to your ices source dir
will work as well.
