Thanks.  I've placed this in contrib/ on the FTP and linked it from
JtR homepage, along with Sun-Zero's updated patches for 1.6.38.

An advice to all those distributing and/or contributing patches for
JtR (as well as for other programs): please include a patch revision
number in the filename.  For instance, the above should have been
"john-1.6.38-all-1.diff" (and I've renamed it accordingly).
