It's probably masked because it's not been tested - not enough testers for all packages.

5.2.13 is masked for all arch at the moment including ~amd64/~x86, I don't think anyone even thought about x86-macos or amd64-macos.

You could try:

echo "=net-misc/whois-5.2.13 **" >> /etc/portage/package.accept_keywords

Portage knows. Ask it by trying to install the package: emerge --ask --verbose net-misc/whois. When it refuses, it will explain why.

Thank you both for your help. None of the versions of Whois in portage would build until I applied these patches.
