Did you check Unison? It uses rsync alghoritm, and if you want to create
a multi-way syncing, you'd have to create a "star" topology (with a
central server in the middle).
If you're familiar with rsync, you should be able to set up a multi way
synchronization with Unison in an hour or two (though the flags are
different); I can send you some of my scripts if you want.
If you want to achieve a real time synchronization, you'd have to play
with a distributed filesystem like Coda, which would take you a couple
of days to set up.
