 mencoder -dvd 1 -vobsubout subtitles -vobsuboutindex 0 -sid 2 -o etc.

 (from $MPlayer/DOCS/encoding.html)

 -vobsubout basename of subtitles.idx (an index) and subtitles.sub the
 subtitles themselves in binary format (if you use the same basename than the
 avi file, mplayer load the subtitle automatically)

 -vobsuboutindex # the number of the subtitle; you can pack subtitles in
 sevarals language in one file and choose it with -sid (-sid = vobsuboutindex)

In the man page you can find this and others options for vobsub subtitles
