Syntax is "mbrola <path to voicefile> <phoneme file> <output>"
So you would say something like
... | mbrola en1 - - | ...

I don't know. Me not using lame cause mp3 so lame. But you will probably 
have to tell it that the input is raw pcm, maybe the samplerate that 
comes out of mbrola and a name for the file lame is supposed to lame, 
err, create. Manpage has details, I'm so sure :)
