I compiled 2.6.0 as usual-

Only problem, I found- it doesn't work with paths correctly-
i.e. it says that it can't find files if I start it not from shell :-(
 From shell all works OK.
I'm newbie in SFU (installed it yesterday) , so could you tell me how 
can I run rsync directly from
windows command prompt?
btw, is there any speed improvements over cygwin ? I don't undrestand yet...
