Did you do "make install" or put rsync in your $PATH?

Obviously rsync is not meant to dump when you pass --help.  You'll 
need to run it under some kind of debugger to find out where we're 
going wrong.  I suspect some kind of problem with your compiler
or system libraries, perhaps in popt.

If you have gdb, then this would help

  gdb ./rsync
  run --help
  (probably crashes here)
  info locals
