I can't comment to the Mikrotik aspect but I've played around with
MPLS linux (mpls-linux.sourceforge.net/) a bit recently.  The kernel
label forwarding aspect (including EoMPLS) seems well maintained and
I've managed to get a Linux instance participating with off the shelf
routers in MPLS forwarding.

Label distribution protocols don't seem to be as well maintained, LDP
being the most mature although you'll need to compile from the latest
sources downloaded from the projects' Subversion server.  There are
code trees for Quagga for MP-BGP support although I would consider
this alpha at best.  afaik there is no RSVP or VPLS support yet.
