john-1.7.6-hmailserver-01.diff fails with :

$ ../run/john -test -format=hmailserver
Benchmarking: hmailserver [32/64]... FAILED (get_hash[0](0))

Compiler Warnings:
hmailserver_fmt.c:188:5: warning: passing argument 1 of ‘SHA256_Init’
from incompatible pointer type
/usr/include/openssl/sha.h:142:5: note: expected ‘struct SHA256_CTX *’
but argument is of type ‘struct SHA_CTX *’


Changing SHA_CTX to SHA256_CTX fixes the problem. The attached patch
applies cleanly on top of jumbo-12 patch and is tested on Arch Linux
64-bit and Ubuntu 10.10 32-bit systems. Will update wiki soon.
