I'm frantically trying to recreate 3 users in the mysql.user table after 
accidentally deleting them.  I have the names and the password hashes 
but don't know the password.  I installed the security/john port but it 
does not seem to support mysql cracking.  Google searches have revealed 
patches to include this function.  Is there some way to add these from 
within the ports system or is it time to learn how to build by hand?  Or 
is there a better way to "crack" these mysql passwords?
