aacPlus is a trade name (of the original inventors, I think) for the
"High Efficiency" AAC format as standardized by the MPEG folks.  So
you might have more luck looking for "HE-AAC".

I understand that vlc (multimedia/vlc) supports it, but I haven't
tried it.  vlc seems to use faac/faad, though, so probably other
faac-based applications should be able to do it too.
