While Privoxy has no dedicated option for this, on most system you
can provide Privoxy with its own resolv.conf using the --chroot
option, jails or similar mechanisms.

Unlike Polipo, Privoxy doesn't have its own DNS client implementation
and thus implementing a DNS server option would require quite a bit
of code (and testing). Given that there are already several other
means to achieve this, adding it to the TODO list seems premature
Also note that you can use Privoxy and Polipo together.
