Subject: Re: Add john.local.conf to release-Jumbo

One thing - PROJ_WIN32 section in makefile has no "../run/john.local.conf"
so file gets deleted on every "make clean" and not recreated while cygwin
handles "touching" a file well.
Tried to push a commit onto john-bleeding, not sure how it went, hoping for
best :)
