lame-3.100-1.el7.x86_64.rpm exists but is not available in EPEL 8. Can this be added to the CentOS yet since the mp3 patents expired? It's available in Fedora.
It seems like the build-time dependencies are incomplete so far (I already tried to build it).

Don't build subpackage mp3x in EPEL 8 due to missing dependency gtk+-devel
The attached patch allows LAME to build in EPEL 8.
(Or you can pull this from the epel8 branch of https://src.fedoraproject.org/forks/mavit/rpms/lame.git if that's easier).
I wonder if it makes sense to disable the subpackage also in Rawhide (for future Fedora releases) when looking to bug #1760995 comment #1.
It seems to me that the mp3x program would be useful only to LAME developers, so I think it probably doesn't make much sense to continue to package it.
Let's go without lame-mp3x in Fedora 32+ and EPEL 8+
Requested epel8 branching:
As https://pagure.io/releng/fedora-scm-requests/issue/20776 says, the package is part of RHEL 8. Thus no EPEL 8 possible.
