Well, we have BIND as part of our libnetwork.so, in the dns/ subfolder. I think Waldemar originally ported it.
Yes, I ported BIND, but Philippe once mentioned some better resolver (djbdns or tinydns?) which is less buggy and has a simpler codebase: http://cr.yp.to/djbdns.html http://tinydns.org/
Thanks Waldemar, for posting it!
Actually, I should have posted it earlier. ;)
