Do not apply jumbo-2.  Simply apply jumbo-2-plugin.tar    It builds the same 
'logical' file (like magnum said, it 'would' be byte/byte compatible, if the 
file globbing gave the same results as the hard coded format layout did 

They are equivelant.   The J2-plug is not a patch. As is listed, there is a 
diff file, but that is only for 'reference' showing what has happened. 
Mostly it is simply file renames.  There are only a couple of things 
actually changed.  The makefile is changed in a couple of blocks.  Then 
john.c is changed, removing the hard codeing of most of the format 
structures.  In replacement of those hard coded format structures, john.c 
includes a couple of header files.  These header files will contain the 
exact same data as what 'used' to be hard coded.  However, makefile will 
recreate them properly, every time something in them changes.
