For some reason patch doesn't recognize what to patch.
I think the easiest way is to get the rsync package I uploaded to the
Debian unstable branch this morning. Until it shows up in the archive,
you can get it here:

The dependencies are libc6 (>= 2.3.1-1), libpopt0 (>= 1.6.4).
If those are too new for you, let me know and I'll try to build a
version that is less demanding.
