Use whois.apnic.net instead of the defunct whois.v6nic.net

Description of problem:

jwhois uses whois.v6nic.net for the block, but this domain seems to have been taken over by a squatter.  Use APNIC instead.

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:

1. jwhois

Actual results:

$ jwhois
[Querying whois.v6nic.net]
[whois.v6nic.net: Name or service not known]

Expected results:

WHOIS query should have gone through.
