This is not an issue with the patch, but with MacOS 10.6.  With this  
OS release, the default build target is x86-64, so the SSE code will  
not compile.  You need to change the build target for macosx-x86-sse2  
to the following:

         $(LN) x86-sse.h arch.h
         $(MAKE) $(PROJ) \
                 JOHN_OBJS="$(JOHN_OBJS) x86.o x86-sse.o" \
                 ASFLAGS="$(ASFLAGS) -m32 -DUNDERSCORES -DBSD - 
                 CFLAGS="$(CFLAGS) -m32" \
                 LDFLAGS="$(LDFLAGS) -m32"

This change is for MacOS 10.6 (Snow Leopard) ONLY.
