Can someone point me to a LAME build (3.90.3 or higher) that supports the use of non-standard genre tags? When ripping with EAC, I would like the LAME encoder to be able to use any genre I specify instead of having to go back with foobar later to retag. Thanks.

Use the --ignore-tag-errors switch. Not sure if this one works in 3.90.3 though.

Yeah, it doesn't work with 3.90.3, but when I tried it with 3.96.1 it just changes the genre to Other - which means I still have to retag later to use the non-listed genre I want. Are there any builds that will let you put anything in the genre tag?

I don't think so.
My solution would be to use APEv2 as described here and later retag using foobar2000's 'Rewrite file tags from database' command.
This adds an extra step, but gives you the flexibility to use any kind of tagging fb2k supports.

OK, thanks! If anybody has any other suggestions, I'm open to them too.

This may end up being an unwarranted question, but where can one find a list of LAME-accepted genres?

Q: Could you add the genre X to the genre list?
No. The ID3v1 genre list is obsolete and inconsistent and was no good to begin with. All genres above 79 has been added by Nullsoft and is not really part of the "ID3v1 standard", if such thing existed.
