	I need to do a hack into rsync code ---
suppose I am rsyncing two dirs

A  <=> B

|----b -> link1
|----c -> link2

|----c -> link3
|----b -> ./site_local/b

what I need is - after running - 
$> rsync -avz --exclude="site_local" --delete A/ B/

link "b" should not change, but link "c" should

The idea is to preserve all links in receiving area that are pointing to

I tried with some hacks in flist.c and exclude.c, but no success.

Would be great if you give some help.
