Download the 2.6.8 tar file and then build and install that.  You could
do that using rpmbuild, as long as your rpm build environment is setup.
For instance, mine defines ~/rpm as the %_topdir in my ~/.rpmmacros
file, so I could do this:

    rpmbuild -tb --clean rsync-2.6.8-tar.gz
    rpm -ivh ~/rpm/RPMS/i686/rsync-2.6.8-1.i686.rpm

Or, you could extract the tar file, configure, make, and install it

    tar xvzf rsync-2.6.8-tar.gz
    cd rsync-2.6.8
    make install
