rwx permissions on them but when rsync tries to set the
permissions for those directories, it fails and exits with a

it, but still exit with a zero status.
stat (destpathname, &deststat);
if ((deststat.st_mode & mask) != (srcstat.st_mode & mask))
if (chmod (pathname, srcstat.st_mode) != 0)
if (errno == EPERM
&& deststat.st_uid != geteuid ()
/* Expected error - just warn about it */
/* Unexpected error - fail */
exit_with_non_zero_status = 1;
