I see this in the 64-bit repositories.  Is there not a package in the 32-bit repositories?
Compaq Presario 900Z (AMD Athlon MP, 1.5 GHz, 2 GB RAM, 30 GB HDD) - VL 6.0 Standard
Gateway Laptop (Celeron M 1.60 GHz, 1 GB RAM, 80 GB HDD) - VL 6.0
2 x Homebrew PCs (AMD Phenom II X4 965, 4096MB RAM, 500 GB SATA HDD, ATI Radeon HD 5700, ASUS M4A79XTD EVO) - VL 7.0-64

OK, I see it in 64 but can't find it in 32. Is it perhaps included in a larger package, or maybe installs with STD, but not other VL flavors?

I have Testing, Packages, and Extra enabled in my 64b system. I can't find whois or dnsutils in the repo.

Where/what is the package name for this?

It was there, as "whois-someversion-etc" up until I reawakened this thread. Then it disappeared.
