Subject: add support for cracking RAR archive passwords [GSoC first cut]

Apply the patch on top of john-1.7.7-jumbo-1. See src/drar.c for usage
instructions. I have also uploaded the patch to the wiki

As expected, speed sucks (~40 c/s) due to 256K rounds of SHA1. I
believe that RAR archive password cracking will be perfect a candidate
for GPU implementation (Lukas?) :-). Currently, only RAR's "-hp" mode
is supported.

I am moving on to adding support for zip archives and FileVault stuff.
