The output you showed indicates that rsync finished building the file
list, transferred that list from the sender to the receiver, the
receiving side built is own delete-file-list, and then the receiving
side died for some reason (though it didn't mention why).  You might
try turning on core dump to see if rsync is crashing.  You might also
try adding one extra -v (to the two already there) to see exactly what
rsync is doing at the time it fails.  Finally, since you're using a
modified rsync, the problem may well be in the modified code for MacOS,
so you'd need to talk to the folks you tweaked rsync about the failure.
