>From the rsync man page:
Use this to specify the path to the copy of rsync
on the remote machine. Useful when it's not in your
path. Note that this is the full path to the
binary, not just the directory that the binary is
Despite what's implied, I don't think that the PATH is grabbed from the
normal shell config, at least not when running rsync using "-e ssh".
Similar to "scp" when using ssh, the PATH is minimally defined by SSH
So in short, just add "--rsync-path=/absolute/path/to/rsync" (on the
target system) to your command line and it should work.
