Hi Alex,
john-1.7.9-jumbo-7  is a bit old, so please use code from magnum's
github repository, the following commands should do the job:

cd JohnTheRipper-bleeding-jumbo/src
make -j
../run/john | grep sha512crypt

After that you should have sha512crypt and sha512crypt-opencl formats
(opencl only if you have proper sdk installed) for cpu and gpu
