I don't know what you mean by "safely". To get an rsync executable
with the patch, download an rsync source package from
http://rsync.samba.org/ (your choice of the stable rsync 2.6.9 or a
snapshot or prelease of rsync 3.0.0), extract it, apply the patch
"patches/detect-renamed.diff", ./configure, and make.

I imagine that it has been lightly tested. You can help by testing it

Was the "Total transferred file size" zero? That just means that no
regular files would be transferred, presumably because none of the
source files had changed since the last run. If the "Total
transferred file size" was zero but rsync itemized transfers, then
something is probably wrong.
