I have added my own #ifdef HAVE_DL around the problem code in john.c and now
the entire make generic builds properly.  The john files properly runs a
-test=0 correctly for all formats. -test=0 does all of the normal
validation, but does not perform any benchmarks past validation. At least
things validate, and the test strings are 'happy'.

I will do more testing, then build the normal way (i.e. specific rules).
But at this point, RC3, + 0001-patch, + #ifdef in john.c 'appears' good from
my end.
