There were a bunch of old code idioms in that patch due to my inability
to compile file-flags on my systems.  I kluged something together to

What about the UF_NOUNLINK, and SF_NOUNLINK flags?  Or is that after
your tweak to define them.  I'm thinking about adding this to the
source in rsync.c:

#define UF_NOUNLINK 0
#define SF_NOUNLINK 0
