Subject: Error while installing Jumbo Patch


I am a UNIX novice but need to get the jumbo-patched JTR running on a Linux
box running on a Pentium X-86. I got JTR up and running - here are the
results of "./john --test".

./john --test
Benchmarking: Traditional DES [24/32 4K]... DONE

But I am having trouble getting the Jumbo/Big Patch installed. I put the
patch diff file in the john src directory and ran "patch <
john-1.7-all-4.diff", and that ran well. However now when I do
"make-linux-x86", I get the following error

make[1]: Entering directory `/home/arvind/john-'
gcc -c -Wall -O2 -fomit-frame-pointer -I/usr/local/include -L/usr/local/lib

make[1]: *** [KRB5_fmt.o] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/arvind/john-'
make: *** [linux-x86-any] Error 2

When I did a find on the file des.h, I got the following result

[root@...alhost src]# find / -name des.h

There seems to be a difference in where the Jumbo Patch is looking for
des.h("/usr/local/include -L/usr/local/lib") and where it actually is

If this is true, is there a way to tell the tell the make program point to
the correct location?
I am sorry for the klutzy problem. I realise this is a stupid, novice
question, but I would deeply appreciate any help.

Kind regards
P.S. I am also willing to contribute to anyone writing a "JTR for Dummies".
How do I qualify ?...  the clue is in the Dummy part !!.
I am prepared to do anything - write, proof-read, check for spellings....
Just let me know !
