Comparing local with remote files without transfer

I try to create jigdo file sets [1], but got stuck when selecting files 
to include. Normally you build the images with local access to a file 
system identical to the mirrored one. But I do not have access to a 
mirror on filesystem level, and I don't want to set up one.

So what I would like to know: Is there a operation mode in rsync that 
compares remote and local files and prints out the names of the matching 

Thanks in advance!
