Possibly something like this:

$ vi whois.te
policy_module(whois, 1.0)
type whois_port_t, port_type;
$ make -f /usr/share/selinux/devel/Makefile whois.pp $ su
# semodule -i whois.pp
# semanage port -a -t whois_port_t -p tcp 43 -- Stephen Smalley National Security Agency -- fedora-selinux-list mailing list fedora-selinux-list@redhat.com https://www.redhat.com/mailman/listinfo/fedora-selinux-list
