compiling rsync on OSX

There is a new mac-port called rsync-devel.

It does contain rsync-3.0.0 cvs HEAD as of
2007-04-10. This version will handle copying of resource forks
(xattr) and does not support ACLs for OSX.

When new stuff comes into rsync cvs HEAD, the mac ports file
will reflect the changes.

Kind regards
