Yes, we don't yet have a released binary build of 1.7.9-jumbo-6 for Mac
OS X.  You should be able to make such a build on your own, after you
install Xcode.  We did test builds of 1.7.9-jumbo-6 for Mac OS X before
we released -jumbo-6; I am not sure if we tested building of office2john
on Mac OS X specifically, though, as this program has extra prerequisite

As magnum correctly pointed out, "make office2john" is only supposed to
work after a successful build of John itself in the same tree.  So you
should do something like:

make clean linux-x86-64
make office2john

Replace "linux-x86-64" with e.g. "linux-x86-sse2" if your Linux distro
install is 32-bit.

I've provided some options above.  Please give these a try and let us
know.  Given that you already have a Linux install in a VM, it's
probably quicker for you to get office2john built there.
