Probably a soon as someone provides patches.

In the meantime, just install dns-proxy-tor.

You can use trans-proxy-tor for that, or install
Quoting http://archives.seul.org/or/talk/Aug-2006/msg00300.html:

I don't think it's in already, but I may be wrong.

And if you don't use FTP anyway, you can just add an bogus
ftp proxy entry.
