There's a libbind 6.0 package at [1] (third from bottom of list) that might have what's needed.  From what I read [2], the resolver library and headers it provides used to be part of BIND 8/9, but later removed as its own separate package.  Not sure if OpenBSD has it's own package corresponding to that.
