Re: RouterOS equiv. of Cisco's "ip ospf mtu-ignore"?

You shouldn't have mismatching MTU's on links anyways, so you'd best just fix the MTU and then as an added bonus, you'll avoid all the ugly issues that arrise when you have an MTU mismatch.

Re: Pseudowire xconnect encapsultaion l2tpv3 or MPLS

You need to use encapsulation mpls.

Also, be sure that basic MPLS works first, and be sure to have LDP neighborship between your routers.

Re: MT MPLS Capabilities

I just wanted to clarify a misconception here: MPLS is not protocol agnostic. It can transport IP and Ethernet, and probably some other protocols as well, just as the underlying technology for MPLS can be IP and ATM. TDM services are different, and cannot just be transported by MPLS, since they requ...

It works perfectly between Cisco and MikroTik at least with static VPLS which is just normal EoMPLS. BGP-based VPLS I haven't tested myself. Maybe somebody else have?

Re: MRTG

I think you're looking at the wrong issue here. Whether you run OSPF or EIGRP has nothing to do with graphing.
Graphing comes through SNMP. Check if you're graphing the right OIDs, as the MIBs may be different between cisco and MikroTik.

There is no maximum-path option on mikrotik, meaning it is not possible to configure outbound load-balancing on multiple paths with BGP. BGP on RouterOS will only select one path. There is no workaround with BGP as far as I know.

RouterOS supports VPLS either as BGP-signalled VPLS or LDP-signalled EoMPLS. So if you can't run either, you're out of luck.

I suggest using GRE instead then.
