Well, the good news is that I got it to compile. the bad news is that when I run dmg2john I get this error:

Jeffs-iMac:run jakeller$ ./dmg2john /Volumes/Time\ Machine/Jeff\'s\ 12-Core\ Mac\ Pro.sparsebundle
/Volumes/Time Machine/Jeff's 12-Core Mac Pro.sparsebundle is not a DMG file!

Suggestions anyone?
