Thanks Matt!

Now the only thing is... I don't know how to patch a patch :(  Sorry, I'm 
not very experienced with building from source.  Figuring out how to apply a 
patch to rsync's source was easy since the patch begins with instructions... 
but your patch doesn't (that I can decipher anyway).  If I understand 
correctly, your patch patches the patch that patches the src, right?  Any 
tips would be very much appreciated. Thanks.
