Well but I think thats the best solution. I am encoding that way
lately. Should work for windows users, too.

It surely is. I did it that way before I used ogg. But I suggest
you do it the following way:

ln -s audio.fr.avi frameno.avi
mencoder -ovc copy -oac copy -xvidencopts pass=2 -o out.avi video.avi

This fixes the avi sync problem. -audiofile never kept the sync for me.
