The version is CVS has the new --files-from option.  You'd do something
like this:

rsync -Re ssh --files-from=/tmp/paths.txt docroot/ ww1:/var/httpd/htdocs

or this:

rsync -Re ssh --files-from=/tmp/paths.txt docroot/ ww1:/var/httpd/htdocs/docroot

Depending on whether you wanted the docroot dir in the destination path.
I'd also suggest adding the -t option so that rsync knows what files
have been synchronized (because it sets the modified-time to match).
