I've got a faint recollection that libbind is somehow unsupported
upstream.  We (speaking with my non-RPM distro hat) don't want to ship
anything that's considered dead by the original programmers.

Perhaps I'm mixing things up, but I thought that liblwres was the way
to go.

On my system, fp_nquery is part of libresolv, but the output format
does not separate the different sections in the response, unlike dig.
This makes it somewhat ambiguous and potentially less useful.
