whois 4.7.27 is out. But I can't update the port to it because it won't install:

$ port install whois

Error: Status 1 encountered during processing.

There seems to be a problem in the Makefiles. I've informed the author of whois and am waiting for assistance in resolving this.

Updated to 4.7.27 in r38566. I just disabled the "install-pos" make target to work around the above bug, so unfortunately this means that we now no longer have localizations. Maybe this can be fixed later.

The developer of whois is hostile towards bug reports and considers speaking with me about his software to be a waste of time. See attached conversation. As with the problems introduced with whois 4.7.26, he seems to continue to want us to patch his software to make it build, rather than fixing the problem at the source. I added a note to the portfile in r38578 advising that we leave the developer alone. I will not contact him again.
