This is right.  It also lets you have perl anywhere in PATH, not rely on
the script's shebang being correct for a specific system.

However, placement of the script in run was wrong.  It is not a script
that an end-user would run directly, and it is meaningless in a binary
build of John (that includes doc and run directories, but not src).
So I've just moved the script to src (and edited the Makefile
accordingly) for 1.7.9-jumbo-2.
