Drat! 10 minutes late. :-P This patch modifies also the  
fake_super.patch, because I removed the unused (and unportable) flags  
	remove flags from setxattr
	add wrappers I hope work on FreeBSD (can't test this myself)
	remove the 0S% prefix for MacOS (it seems the macos extended  
attributes should be considered simply the user namespace)
	renamed the special fake_super extended attribute to match the  
naming recommendations from the freedesktop

If you could test this, Ensel, I'd be grateful. Try a local copy with  
-X first. To build it:
	cvs -d:pserver:cvs at pserver.samba.org:/cvsroot co rsync
	cd rsync
	patch -p1 < patches/acls.patch
	patch -p1 < patches/xattrs.patch
	patch -p1 < patches/fake_super.patch
	patch -p1 < ~/freebsd-xattr.patch
	./configure --enable-xattr-support

Just so you know: there's almost certainly a bug / typo /  
misunderstanding somewhere in there.
