As far as I know, compiling John on windows requires Cygwin. There is
a MinGW make target, but it doesn't work for me the last time I tried
it on the Jumbo build. I'm not sure what you need to compile on
Delphi/FPC (is that a mac? if so JtR should compile fine).
Modify the prarms.h file in SRC then have a look at the make targets,
type make :)
To build John the Ripper, type:
        make clean SYSTEM
where SYSTEM can be one of the following:
([i] is an optional letter for pre-built intrinsics, eg. -sse2i vs -sse2):
linux-x86-64-avx         Linux, x86-64 with AVX (2011+ Intel CPUs)
linux-x86-64-xop         Linux, x86-64 with AVX and XOP (2011+ AMD CPUs)
linux-x86-64[i]          Linux, x86-64 with SSE2 (most common)
linux-x86-64-icc         Linux, x86-64 compiled with icc
linux-x86-64-clang       Linux, x86-64 compiled with clang

On windows I make:
make clean win32-cygwin-x86-sse2i

within the cygwin shell naturally.
