This could indeed be the case, but I don't know how to check/solve this.
I'm using nsswitch with winbind...
passwd: compat winbind
group: compat winbind
... but running the rsync configure script gives me!
checking compat.h usability... no
checking compat.h presence... no
checking for compat.h... no
How can I check whether rsync uses /etc/nsswitch.conf or not?

Yes, it is. I have tried with some strange names too, and got some
"Lookup of `????????' failed "
