After another minor patch I just committed, there is one single problem left in OSX (except for OpenCL problems that I blame Apple for) and that is not in -fixes:

Benchmarking: EncFS PBKDF2 AES / Blowfish [32/64]... FAILED (cmp_all(1))
1 out of 177 tests have FAILED

Note that this happens most of the time, but not always! Some initialization problem?

Everything else - in all branches - now build and test fine under OSX 10.8 including with HAVE_NSS, HAVE_GMP and HAVE_KRB5. Also, the separate targets office2john, vncpcap2john, gpg2john and dmg2john work just fine. All CUDA formats work fine. Some OpenCL formats still have problems. I have yet to understand why that is - I'm pretty sure we are not doing things wrong.

BTW Jim, this means your SHA2 code builds and tests fine too.

I noticed there were some differences in the EncFS code between magnum-jumbo and bleeding that should not be there (ie. someone posted fixes to bleeding instead of magnum-jumbo) - but this had nothing to do with the problem (and I backported them now).
