You mean things like this?

            if (john_main_process)
                    fprintf(stderr, "%s%d password hash%s cracked,"
                            " %d left\n", total ? "\n" : "", total,
                            total != 1 ? "es" : "", db->password_count);

Yes, it might be better to let the lines cross the right "margin".
