Subject: cracking a 12 charactor password

As part of a system audit, I am being asked to audit application admin password. I know it is 12 characters and MD5. I am trying to use John (win32mmx 1.7 multi-patch) with option -i. I have changed the MaxLen to 12. When I run john -i passwordfile (one user's password) I get a message MaxLen = 12 exceeds the compile time limit of 8.

Can john's options be set to try and crack a MD5 password larger then 8 characters?
