you may want to look at janusvm ( http://janusvm.peertech.org/ ) which uses a PPTP VPN tunnel to force a default route which does transparent DNS proxy through dns-proxy-tor on a virtual machine to plug the DNS leak. [note that you may need to alter your DNS settings if your local gateway is also the nameserver - see docs for details]

i don't know that this capacity could be integrated any further into
tor in a cross-platform / effective manner.  the mapaddress capability
is a good abstraction point for this in my opinion. [that is, building
a full DNS resolver into tor would be complex and there exist easy
ways to integrate mapaddres to your host resolution]
