Detailed Description

A DNS resolver which uses libresolv/libbind to query a DNS server.

If we have a res_ninit then we make a thread-local resolver state, which we use to perform all resolutions.

If we do not have res_ninit, then we do a res_init() at server-create time, and a res_close() at server-close time, and we are NOT thread-safe. I think we don't actually have to call res_init(), but we do anyway.

int  debug 

These routines take care of creating/destroying/etc. the objects that hold the DNS layer configuration. SPF_dns_server_t objects contain malloc'ed data, so they must be destroyed when you are finished with them, or you will leak memory.

if debugging is enabled, information about the results from libresolv will be displayed. This information is often not passed on to (and not needed by) the higher level DNS layers.
