Hi Craig

I thought it probably would be possible to set the frame rate in the encoder, however (a) I wonder whether going from (say) a rawvideo with 39fps to 30fps might be worse quality than simply setting dump-gnash to 30fps (as 30/39 is not a whole number) (b) as the rawvideo files are really massive then setting all other things being equal, recording (say) 30fps or 24fps could reduce the hard disk space required.

(By the way, I'm very much a newbie to participating in open-source projects).

That can be handled directly in the encoder.  Tell it that the output FPS should be 24 or 30, or whatever you like (eg, -ofps 24000/1001 in mencoder).  The Gnash dumper simply spits out what the renderer would have sent to the window -- it should not affect the FPS of your encoded video.
