DNS Library for Mac OS X?

We (FSS) are in need of a dns resolver library for Mac OS X that has a timeout, resolves MX records, is mt-safe, and optionally supports IPv6. We've found FireDNS, but it's GPL. There's also c-ares but it lacks the ability (seemingly) to handle IPv6.

Suggestions, anyone?

  1. DJBDNSBIND also includes one. BIND is bundled with OS X, so it may be your best bet.

  2. BIND isn't mt-safe. DJBDNS doesn't seem to have any license attached, I'm not touching that one.
