Just do not exit to port 53, so nobody will try to tunnel their DNS
requests over Tor through you - tho I doubt many, if any, do this.
For the things Tor does resolve itself (like with normal exit requests
to say slashdot.com:80) just make sure your system can do DNS resolves
with the usual gethostbyname() libc call. Or, if you are on 0.1.2.*
that your etc/resolv.conf has servers in it that work.
