For those packaging rsync 3.2.4 using a C compiler where "char" defaults to
"unsigned char", such as ARM systems, rsync 3.2.4 will potentially generate
the wrong rolling checksum values, thus failing to optimize the copy with
the full amount of matching local data from a prior copy when high-bit
characters are present.  This can be fixed using a simple configure patch:


After applying that, doing a full configure & make will fix things up
(those updating an existing build dir can use "make reconfigure" & make).

This fix is committed to git for the upcoming 3.2.5 release.
