    Is there a program that will export audio from an mp4 file into an mp3 file?
    It has to be able to do more than one file at a time, or que a large list of files so I can leave it running in the background.

    I don't know of any non-shareware GUI software, but you can install faad (AAC decoder) and lame (MP3 encoder) with Macports (requires XCode) and find a bash script, which would allow you to batch convert them from Terminal.
    There is no system but GNU and Linux is one of its kernels.

    I suppose just using iTunes would be too easy?

    Oh yeah, I forgot that iTunes could do that. But it probably doesn't use the LAME encoder, and I'm all about the FOSS!

    In that case how about Max?

    It'll convert files in any direction you have the codecs for. You can just drag and drop a batch of them to the conversion window and it will chew through them exporting them using the codec and settings of your choice.
