Thanks for your help. Actually I think it is quite easy, it's just not 
intuitive that this is how to solve the problem.

There are a few issues, though:
-audiofile doesn't work an ac3-tracks. If I try, mencoder (and also 
mplayer) crashes with a segfault. This is not a big problem as audio and 
video can be remuxed with avimerge from the transcode package after 

After remuxing, there were indeed sync-problems, but the delay was the 
same through the whole movie, so it could be easily fixed with avisync.

Also I learned the hard way, that one shouldn't forget to pass -nolirc to 
the mplayer process that does the frameserving if one intends to watch 
another movie while encoding... :-)
