If you really don't want to write a wrapper, how about using an
external program, eg:

let chan = Unix.open_process_in "host -t mx"
(* some code to parse the 7th field of the response - eg. using Pcre *)

However writing C wrappers couldn't really be much simpler with OCaml
(compare it to Perl or Java some time!).
