Description of problem:
Add a whois server for .nf in /etc/jwhois.conf. I'm aware, that IANA doesn't
list one at http://www.iana.org/domains/root/db/nf.html, but Cocca is the only
technical and authoritative registry of .nf and provides really a working whois
server giving correct results. So let's use it...

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Everytime, whois query fails.

Actual results:
# whois names.nf
[Querying whois.internic.net]

Expected results:
Add the following line after "\\.net$" block in /etc/jwhois.conf:

  "\\.nf$" = "whois.cocca.cx";

Because it works as expected:

# whois -h whois.cocca.cx names.nf
[Querying whois.cocca.cx]

Additional info:
Please try to get this fix upstream - upstream is unluckily always very very
unresponsive to me.
