How do you specify an alternate config file when using rsync with ssh?

It seems that the "--config" option is only used when rsync is run as a
daemon.  However, it you want to run something like "rsync -e ssh
--config=<config_FILE> ..." the "--config" option is ignored.  When I run
rsync with ssh, I want to specify a different config file that contains
different modules than the config file used by the rsync daemon.  How do I
accomplish this?

Thank you.
