No, as I tried to explain, FFmpeg can neither use LAME 
nor MAD for decoding. As I wrote, if you compile LAME 
with --disable-decoder (to make sure no GPL'd code 
gets linked into LAME in case this is possible at all) 
you do not loose any feature of FFmpeg (or in other 
words: It makes no difference from FFmpeg pov).
