Is --link-dest supported on remote ssh side?

I'm trying to make backups with rsync with the --list-dest option.
My first backup is made like this:
rsync -azR --delete -e ssh --exclude-from=./exclude.lst /tmp/test
login at server:/tmp/backup/backup-nelly-2007-04-17-12-34-26/
Without touching any of the files which were backed up, I launch a new
backup with this command:
rsync -azR --delete -e ssh --exclude-from=./exclude.lst
login at server:/tmp/backup/backup-nelly-2007-04-17-12-34-33/
I had expected all files in the second backup to be hard links to the
first backup files, but this does not seem to be the case:
ls -1 -i backup-nelly*/tmp/test/testfile
Both client and server side are using rsync 2.6.9 protocol version 29.
What am I doing wrong, or is this simply not supported?
