I don't have any special masks or anything on this partition so I don't know what the problem is...

Exept for the 'fopen: $JOHN/dynamic.conf: No such file or directory' issue it works fine for me.
If you apply an umask=000 for the partition you're compiling the package it's up to you to adjust the PKGBUILD for your special needs.

Package now builds by adding "mkdir ${pkgdir}/usr/bin" under line 61, but the john binary is not packaged.

I then changed line "for i in $(find . -type f -perm 755); do" to "for i in $(find . -type f -perm 777); do" and that gets the john binary packaged, but when I try to run an MD5 crack it gives me this error:
fopen: $JOHN/dynamic.conf: No such file or directory

I think this package is very broken.

/home/logan/AUR/john-mpi/PKGBUILD: line 66: cd: /home/logan/AUR/john-mpi/pkg/usr/bin: No such file or directory

It seems to build but doesn't make any binaries anywhere that I can find.

It not only works with mpich2 but also with openmpi. You should adjust the dependency accordingly.

There is already john 1.7.8. Don't know if it works with MPI patch. Nevertheless to use ths PKGBUILD one need to change the url to
1.7.7 is know in archive.

Error when building:
make[1]: mpicc: Command not found

/opt/mpich2/bin/ has to be added to $PATH!
