--Also forwarded tot he Portmaintainer-- :-)

Use the latest STABLE john-version.... :-D
Why the maintainer dosn`t update the Port for current is a riddle to me..
He wrote me already if I would test a Port (for a little older Version)
and I wrote him back that I and Solar tested it on my local box.. since
that I never heared anythign and the Port is STILL not commited..not even

Maybe he has no spare time but a simple cvs isn`t such a
huge job...

So use the latest stable john and you`ll get SSE wich may, or may not,
help you. ;)
Btw: a faster CPU helps much more... :]

Kind regards,
