Ok, here's a few tests. I just watched the A-V meter for each test and
observed where it seemed to average. The values I give are imprecise,
but the differences between tests are noticable.

-oac mp3lame -ovc lavc		0.78
-oac copy -ovc lavc		0.56
-oac pcm -ovc lavc		0.40

I tried -ovc rawrgb for each of the three audio codecs, but couldn't see
any difference.

All tests were done on "fastandfurious.vob" 

...with a simple line like this:
mencoder fastandfurious.vob -ovc lavc -lavcopts vcodec=mpeg4 -oac pcm 
-ofps 23.976

Also, I noticed that when I remove -ofps, the A-V values are very small.
I don't know if that helps you any.
