I don't use HP-UX, so I haven't dealt with depot files before.  However,
I think you use "swinstall" to install the binaries into their correct
places.  Here is a web page that has the rsync 2.6.6 depot files, and
some answers available via the "Help" link:

(I'd recommend using 2.6.6 more than 2.6.4, BTW.)

The files in a typical rsync install are very minimal -- the only thing
you need for doing copies over a remote shell (such as ssh) is the rsync
binary itself.  Other support files that may be included in the depot
are the 2 man pages, a sample rsyncd.conf file (for those that want to
startup up a daemon server instead of using a remote-shell based copy),
and perhaps even an init.d script (which can be used to start an rsync
daemon when the system boots, but only for those that need this).
