How did you proceed to patch?

iMac:~ lag$ mv  /Users/lag/Desktop/rsync-3.0.0pre8\ 2/patches/ /Users/ 
iMac:~ lag$ cd Desktop/rsync-3.0.0pre8
iMac:~/Desktop/rsync-3.0.0pre8 lag$ patch -p1 <patches/acls.diff
patching file acls.c
patching file compat.c
patching file proto.h
iMac:~/Desktop/rsync-3.0.0pre8 lag$ patch -p1 <patches/xattrs.diff
patching file compat.c
patching file xattrs.c
patching file proto.h
Reversed (or previously applied) patch detected!  Assume -R? [n] n
Apply anyway? [n] n
Skipping patch.
1 out of 1 hunk ignored -- saving rejects to file proto.h.rej
iMac:~/Desktop/rsync-3.0.0pre8 lag$ ./configure Configuring rsync 3.0.0pre8

And it goes fine... As you said both acl and xattr try to patch  
proto, just skip the second one and everything is ok.
Dunno if this should be considered a bug or something wanted.
