Oh, it's so trivial that there's no tutorial anywhere. ;-)

In john.conf, find the [List.External:AutoStatus] section.  Find this
line in it:

	interval = 1000;

adjust the number 1000 as desired.  Status will be printed after every
"interval" password candidates.

Then use --external=AutoStatus on the command line along with other
options that you normally use.

There's no way to have this status printing based on real time rather
than on number of candidate passwords tried.  Also, note that this has
some performance impact (negligible for slow hashes, significant for
fast hashes).
