Not at all. I'm developing the bindings on a OS X box, and by wrapping
the DNSService API, it'll run on OS X, Linux, FreeBSD, Solaris and any
other platform that has the DNSService API. The only difference is on OS
X, I don't need to link with any extra libraries, its part of the main
system lib. On other platforms, I link against libdns_sd.
