BTW: lutimes isn't going to work on any filesystem with a kernel before 2.6.22.
 For HAVE_LUTIMES, the configure script tests only whether the "lutimes"
function exists in glibc as a non-stub, not whether it actually works.  Thus,
if your copy of glibc was built on a machine with kernel >= 2.6.22, it will
contain a non-stub lutimes and rsync's HAVE_LUTIMES test will pass.
