Thanks for your report.

Unfortunately the situation can't be solved with rpm; jwhois, if so configured,
can use other web browsers (w3m, maybe others) instead of lynx, if they can
submit POST forms in a way supported by jwhois.  Requiring lynx would be
unnecessarily specific, requiring "a web browser" not specific enough.

The only way I can see to represent the complete information is to add
"Provides: jwhois(supported-browser) = %{jwhois-version}" to each
of the supported browsers; that's just overengineered IMHO.
