It may be that OS X is transferring the chown() call from the symlink to
the referent. Try to chown it manually (either use the chown command,
or compile a program that does nothing but chown a symlink) and see if
that works. If not, perhaps the OS X version of rsync should be tweaked
to avoid trying to chown() a symlink.
