Why do you need that?  Why not just use pwdump* like most people do,
then feed the resulting text file into John (on FreeBSD if you like)?

Anyway, this collection:

includes several relevant programs with C sources which might compile on
Unix systems, as well as one written in Perl.,, samdump.tar.gz - include C sources (the last one
is probably ntreg which you're referring to);

SamDecrypt.tgz - Perl.

I haven't tried these out myself.  I don't "do" Windows.
