Hi,
attached here is a patch for libunbound support. It is currently under a
three-way ifdef with c-ares and and adns.
Over existent libs, it adds full IPV6 coverage (both AAAA, PTR and v6
nameservers handling), prospective DNSSEC compatibility (not implemented in
this patch) maintaining async capabilities and portability. 
I've made this patch as neither c-ares nor adns were completely working on my
v6 box, and it was quite annoying.

The patch has already been checked, built and tried under both Windows and
Linux, screenshots at:

It is against latest trunk (r29942)

I've also built a DLL-pack for libunbound, which can be found at
http://www.unstable.it/luca/patch/wireshark/libunbound-1.3.3.zip

My idea for it is to at least replace the adns portions (as i tried to
implement what needed there, but upstream seems dead) but this decision is up
to you.

It was my first contact with wireshark code, and I hope to not have missed
something important. Please double-check it and fix/squash/screw what needed :)
