An LDNS zone structure (ldns_zone) is nothing more than an ldns_rr* for the SOA, and an ldns_rr_list* for the records therein, and there are functions to access and modify those - see <http://www.nlnetlabs.nl/projects/ldns/doc/zone_8c_source.html>


  ldns_zone *z = ldns_zone_new();
  ldns_zone_set_soa(z, soa);     // requires an SOA "ldns_rr*" object
  ldns_zone_push_rr(z, rr);      // requires other "ldns_rr*" object

Is the real issue figuring how to create an "ldns_rr"?
