You don't mention what command you're running, so I'll assume that the
problem is that you're not trying to make a daemon connection (which is
the only thing that the RSYNC_PASSWORD affects) but instead being
prompted by ssh to enter your password.  If so, read the ssh docs (e.g.
ssh-keygen) and get a solo ssh command to work without a password
prompt, then rsync will work without a prompt.
