the whining noise you are experiencing are coming from under the bonnet and you need to have the belt serviced. look for any oil leaks and correct them first. if not inspect the condition of the belt and and whether or not you can read it normally. if not it should be turned around. sounds absolutely crazy i know. it has worked for me for about 10 years. it could be just worn and excessively glazed and cracked. simple fix bloke. cheers.

IS the belt tight? Turning while standing still is the hardest to do and puts the most strain on the pump and can cause the belt to slip. Could be the pump,like you said too.

I agree with iffi, if the pump is whining and not screeching? If the noise is a screeching when turning the steering wheel, you'd be best advised to replace the belt, or try tightening it first....It has to be pretty tight!
If the noise is a whining, the problem would seem to be the bearings in the steering pump....Depending where you are in the world it may be economically viable to replace them or to look for a good second hand pump....
