Cannot apply delete-sent-files.diff on solaris platform

I have been trying various ways and looking though the lists, but I can't
seem to find a solution.


I am running a Ultra2 with Solaris 9 and rsync 2.5.2, with the old
-move-files patch.

I want to upgrade to 2.6.3 with the delete-sent-files patch. Which I
understand is the new and improved version serving the same purpose.


Unfortunately my patch under Solaris did'nt work, so I d/l the GNU version
of Patch and I could complete the patch of that diff file.

Then I execute a make proto per the instructions and receive the following.


bash-2.05# make proto

cat ./*.c ./lib/compat.c | awk -f ./mkproto.awk >./

awk: syntax error near line 12

awk: illegal statement near line 12

awk: syntax error near line 21

awk: bailing out near line 21

make: *** [proto] Error 2


Could someone shed some light on this.  I need to run this this week. This
was supposed to be a simple upgrade.


I applied it to my other machines (RedHat) and they worked fine.  But this
solaris box I require this patch, because after the files are moved from
this machine the originals on the Sun box must be deleted to make room for
additional incoming files.
