I think the easiest way to get this working on RHEL8 would be to inject
your newer libxcrypt with LD_LIBRARY_PATH or LD_PRELOAD at the time you
invoke john.  Something like:

LD_LIBRARY_PATH=~/libxcrypt/directory/with/so/file/in/it ./john ...

or similar with "export", so you don't need to specify it each time (but
then it'll affect other programs you run as well).
