I've just compiled 2.5.6 release on Tru64 V5.0A (configure detects
alphaev67-dec-osf5.0, gcc release is a 3.1.1).

rsync fails using rsync://<hostname>/ syntax.

> lct at goliath(32) [rsync-2.5.6]$ ./rsync rsync://stitch/
> rsync: getaddrinfo: stitch 873: servname not supported for ai_socktype
> rsync error: error in socket IO (code 10) at clientserver.c(83)

Is there anyone else that has the same problem ?
