I see this in the 64-bit repositories.  Is there not a package in the 32-bit repositories?

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.
