Subject: Re: Trying to build john without *_fmt_plug.c

here is a patch that removes any plug dependencies.  That is if you manually rename NT_fmt_plug.c to NT_fmt.c and gost_plug.c to gost.c.  NOTE, I did not look at uaf2john depending upon uaf_encode_plug.c, since I have moved that fully out of my test environment, due to it being 100% not buildable under VC.

The dependancies for netlm and nethalflm were fixed by doing strcmp against the formats label.  The media wiki 'function' is not used by mediawiki format.  it is a simple helper function.  I moved it out of the plugin format.  It was only added, due to the salt fixup being kind of nasty, since it is variable length. It was needed in loader and cracker, so I made a function for it.  It seemed 'right' to put it into the format file, but that makes this a non-plug format. I simply moved it to cracker.

NT I am pretty sure is easiest to simply make a non-plug.  Since it is tied into the asm stuff, breaking it out is non trivial.  NT2 can still be  a plug.  Only 1 has to be non-plug.

as has been mentioned, there ARE coupling between some plug files themselves. However, if the user is removing plug files, they will have to address these themselves.  

I have also included one VC specific tweak to BLAKE2, to get things to compile (inline is not usable in c, _inline must be used). That code is already in #ifdef MSCVER so will not impact anything else.
