The compiled dmg2john (in reality it's a symlink to john but anyway it's 
the code in dmg2john.c) supports Sparsebundle since Feb 2014. The 
alternative unfortunately doesn't have support for Sparsebundle.

So the bottom line problem here is your building on OSX. You need to 
focus on this until you get past it.

Didn't your brew installation say something along the lines of the below?

This formula is keg-only, which means it was not symlinked into /usr/local.

Apple has deprecated use of OpenSSL in favor of its own TLS and crypto 

Generally there are no consequences of this for you. If you build your
own software and it requires this formula, you'll need to add to your
build variables:

     LDFLAGS:  -L/usr/local/opt/openssl/lib
     CPPFLAGS: -I/usr/local/opt/openssl/include

This is likely your problem. Did you supply these to ./configure? On my 
machine, configure somehow finds the library by itself. I can't remember 
whether I made some clever symlinks, or made an actual tweak to the 
official Jumbo autoconf stuff to find it... oh, here's an idea: Try 
"brew install pkg-config" and then try to re-configure Jumbo. Maybe 
that's the only glue you need.
