Ogg-Vorbis audio is not compatible with AVI containers. You must mux it separately.

Extract audio

mplayer dvd://1 -alang en -ao pcm:fast:waveheader:audio.wav -vc null -vo null

Encode audio

oggenc --quality 4.0 -o audio.ogg audio.wav

Use a pipe to streamline the previous two

mkfifo -m600 audio.pipe

These two must be run simultaneously (source first) and cannot be backgrounded.

mplayer dvd://1 -alang en -ao pcm:fast:waveheader:file=audio.pipe -vc null -vo null
oggenc --quality 4.0 -o audio2.ogg audio.pipe
rm audio.pipe

Calculate target bitrate from movie length and encoded audio size
movie length: 7446 seconds

video_space=$(((700 * 8388608) - $(stat -c '%s' audio.ogg) ))
video_length=7446
video_bitrate=$(( (${video_space} / ${video_length}) / 1024))

Mencoer options are poorly documented!

If 'Skipping frame!' or '1 duplicate frame(s)!' warnings occur repeatedly, and the resultant audio grows out of sync (as if one is faster) then try tweaking the source framerate. 'skipping frame' means there's too many frames coming in, so try a lower fps. 'duplicate frame' means there isn't enough frames coming in to satisfy the outgoing framerate, so try a higher source fps. Try and tweak so that there are as few of each message as possible.

( In two samples, the settings that got near-perfect results were '-fps 22000/1020 -ofps 24000/1001' )

-- mencoder doesn't support rendering SSA/ASS subtitles, and renders them as regular text. Very ugly.
To get around this, you can pre-render using mplayer. Beware, this takes an obscene amount of disk space (raw video frames)

mplayer -ass -sub file.ass -vo yuv4mpeg file.avi
mplayer -sid 0 -vo yuv4mpeg file.avi
