Looking at the suggestions I see this:
Poslib seems to have been developed until 2005, similar problem as ADNS. It's
a C++ lib as well, causing a binding problem.
UDNS looks interesting as well. As it's conceptual model is further from ADNS
than c-ares is it might take more work to get it interfaced. Another thing not
apparent is the cross platform support. There is mention of a Win32 port, but
that is stated to be out of date.
