One way to manualy optimize a transfer for a new directory that is related to
an old directory is to first copy the old directory using --link-dest, and then
copy the new directory using --fuzzy:

rsync -av --link-dest=../olddir olddir/ dest:newdir
rsync -av --fuzzy --delete-after newdir dest:

The first rsync run will just hard-link everything into the newdir destination
as long as you have a local copy of the identical olddir files.
