Well, there's the cprops library, but I'd need to make a package out of that

Both are done with specialized data structures.
I'm looking for something that handles a more generic binary data blob... so that I
could have arbitrary searches.
For instance, in Perl, I could seed the tree with:
$key = join('.', reverse(split(/\./, $domain)));
$keylen = length($key) * 8;
and then do rDNS tree searches for hostnames.
One could similarly imagine converting phone numbers into BCD and doing E.164 searches in
such a tree.
Net::Patricia currently uses a modified version of libpatricia from the MERIT Radius or
SNMP code (forget which)... but it only handles IPv6 and IPv4 as I said.
Ideally it would be an external library that I could just link to.
Anyone have a pointer?
