Whois does not support /etc/whois.conf ?

The current version of whois has not been built to support
/etc/whois.conf. Is there a reason for this? This is particularly a
problem for new TLD's which without a modified whois.conf can only be
queried by passing the correct host to whois (-h)

FWIW the man page still references whois.conf and the whois.conf
manpage is also installed presumably as part of this package. If it is
not going to be compiled with support it would be handy to call it out
in the manpage.
