I found a working command under Linux:
/usr/local/bin/ffmpeg -y -i src.mkv  -f dvd -target ntsc-dvd -r 29.97 -vf
scale=720:480 -vf subtitles=filename=src.srt -aspect 16:9 -b:v 8000k -g 12
-mbd rd -trellis 1 -flags +mv0 -cmp 0 -subcmp 2 dest.mpg

That "seems"to be easier. But I haven't found any option to set
font/size/color in document or Google yet.
