As usual, no one has updated the MPI patch to the new version of JtR
yet, and I don't know whether anyone intends to.

No, your pastebin shows numerous rejects.

So you may use whatever version of JtR you had working with MPI before,
and/or use the newer version without MPI (depending on your needs and
habits).  When/if someone updates the MPI patch to the new version, you
may start using that.

All - I don't mind merging the MPI patch into jumbo, which will
apparently make life easier for W.A.  Thus, please feel free to make and
submit a revision of the MPI patch suitable for integration into the
jumbo patch.  It must not strictly depend on MPI; instead, it should
have -DHAVE_MPI, which could be uncommented in the Makefile to activate
the functionality (similarly to HAVE_SKEY and -lskey, which we already
have - these came from another patch I merged).
