I usually use "-oac mp3lame"... But copy should be fine, too...

I just executed
% mencoder -endpos 5 -oac mp3lame -ovc libdv -o /tmp/f+ck.dv
% mencoder -endpos 5 -oac mp3lame -ovc libdv -o /tmp/f_ck.dv

Maybe your source file is evil or from a parallel world, where DV
format is somehow evil (take from Futurama/Farnsworth's Parabox)?
