I have installed both iTunes-LAME and the Mike Solomon LAME package on my
Mac (OS 10.3.2).

Which version of LAME does the Slimserver use?

If both are installed it will find the LAME package first and use that.

Just to be clear.. are you saying that iTunes from Apple (be it on a Mac or on
Windows) uses LAME as it's encoder?

No.

There's a neat program called iTunes-LAME Encoder
<http://www.blacktree.com/apps/iTunes-LAME/> that you can install on a
Mac that includes a LAME binary for ripping your music with iTunes and
using LAME to encode it. Recommended. Since it's easy to install and
useful, the SlimServer software will use it's copy of LAME if
installed.

The SlimServer will use Mike Solomon's LAME package if that's installed
too. If both are installed, it will use the LAME package.
