The rsync executable just needs whatever dynamic libraries it was
compiled with (which could be eliminated if compiled with static
linkages) and (if a remote-shell connection is desired) a working
remote-shell program.  (It should be able to talk to a daemon rsync
without that.)  If you're running a daemon, there's also the
rsyncd.conf file.  Other than that, I can't think of anything else
that rsync needs.
