Ignoring specific file type

    How can I tell rsync to ignore FIFO files?  I have one backup script 
that uses rsync to backup some 11 servers at night.  Each machine has 
their own set of FIFO files, so it's not like I can tell rsync to use 
--exclude-from because the files aren't the same on the various servers.
