Just a note to Linux RPM fans.

Doing "rpm -ta rsync-2.4.7pre1.tar.bz2" should build a nice rpm. However, on
RH 7.1 it doesn't. I've seen this before - makes me guess the .spec file was
for a Mandrake system? (they do something funny with man pages that breaks
builds on RH systems)

Anyway, here's a patched version that fixes these faults. Just do a "rpm -ba
rsync.spec" and/or replace the
rsync-2.4.7pre1/packaging/redhat/5.0/rsync.spec file.
