I'm not sure if Simon's response was clear enough to you, so I'll
rephrase it: you need to take *.chr files out of John 1.6 distribution
(which you had downloaded previously).

The README for development versions of John says this:

"There are no charset files included with development versions of John.
You're supposed to take them from John 1.6 distribution."

You'll likely also want to use some larger wordlists:
