It looks like something in popt is interacting badly with your system.
Please try getting the latest version from

and running the test cases with "make check".  If they fail, please
try to get a C programmer with access to your machine to find the
problem.  If they pass, then try installing libpopt and linking rsync
against that.  (Use "make distclean; ./configure


p.s. if somebody is helping you debug problems *for free* then it is
kind of annoying to not read and follow their instructions:
