How do I add subtitles (hardsubs) to an xvid avi when converting from VOBs under FreeBSD?

I have a handfull of VOBs that have embeded subtitle streams, and I want to convert to AVI with hardsubs.
Currently using ffmpeg to do the conversions, but I can't seem to find the options to make it hardsub. There has to be a way, right? I'm willing to compile/install whatever I need to.
For some reason, the only [somewhat] useful results I can turn up on Google want me to use Windows, which I'd rather not.
And just for the record: No, I'm not doing anything illegal. I have the license to do what I want with the DVDs ... I just don't want to pay the production company to do it for me.
