Comment (by rpspringuel):

 > then allow File type: Dynamic Libraries *dylibs

 This step is what made things work.  Without it behavior was the same as
 before.  Looking more closely, it seems that
 `/opt/local/lib/libmp3lame.dylib` is a symlink to
 `/opt/local/lib/libmp3lame.0.dylib` which, as noted in the log @kencu
 posted, is what actually gets loaded (the lines are the same in my log
 now).  So it seems that Audacity is having trouble following the symlink.
 Why it would have trouble now, but not before, I have no idea.  Further,
 even though I selected `/opt/local/lib/libmp3lame.dylib` the library
 location now points specifically to `/opt/local/lib/libmp3lame.0.dylib`
 which means once it stopped forcing the filename to `libmp3lame.dylib` it
 could (and did) follow the symlink.  Again, no idea why this change in

 Numbers in the position of that `0` usually relate to the version number,
 thus allowing multiple versions to exist side-by-side (with the symlink
 pointing to the "default"), but LAME reports itself to be in version 3.100
 so I'm not sure if that applies in this situation.

 Well, at least I'm back up and running at this point.
