about two months ago I have sent a message to the list that I have put 
a precompiled rsync-2.5.5 version based on the below mentioned clean 
AutarkicalBuilds on our public ftp server, since beginning of December 
2002 it's there:

You mentioned  missing gcc (and other tools??) on your Solaris 8 64bit 
machine. A while ago since end of November I have put also a fundamental 
precompiled set of tools including gcc and many other tools on our 
public ftp server. 
Worth to mention that these have been precompiled in a clean and 
autarkical way. It's here:

If you think something is unclear then don't hesitate to ask.

Have a nice day
