First, "-fps" is very different than "-ofps", and you repeadedly use the former when you seem to mean the later.

You can't just leave "-ofps" off, because the number gets rounded off.  Obviously, if you want ~59.94 FPS, you should use "-ofps 60000/1001".

And if you really want to force mpeg1/2 to use an invalid FPS (that might not be playable by other players), you can just add "vstrict=-1" to your lavcopts.
