To do that, all builds should work. Thus, non-SSE, .S 32 bit SSE, .S 32 bit MMX, and intrinsic builds all should work. >right now with MPI, UTF-8 and the auto-formats-list added (btw the >posted version works fine with your Jumbo-2 except it starts with >listing md5-gen 21 times or so :). This is due to order the init stuff is done. The only stipulation (right now), is that md5_gen gets init prior to md5_std. The order can be change, so that it is 'closer' to the john 'real' release order. >Then as soon as Intrinsics are ready, >throw them in for a Jumbo-4. I am working to get intrinsic stuff done. It is NOT far off. However, there are some formats which need work. >If not, release a Jumbo-4 as soon as it's >there.

The 'clash', comes from 1. makefile - .o inclusion. 2. params.h - version number 3. options.c - the list of formats supported 4. john.c - declaration of fmt structs, and calling of fmt structs init. I believe we can work around all of these. I am not sure about makefile, but I am sure there are some make wizards out there that can do it quickly.
