Making rsync compile under Mac OS X 10.3.9 with extended attributes

Better news! It compiles and it works!
I'm joining the .diff to apply on a 3.0.0pre9 with flags and crtimes 

But as I said before, this is an alpha version, need testing before 
saying it's functional. Be careful using it, it potentially still may 
contains odd bugs!

I've successfully cloned the sources folder with it ( ./rsync -aXNv 
--stats . ../rsync-copy ) but it crashes when I try a folder with a 
resourcefork file:

Ordinateur-de-LaG:~/Desktop/rsync-test lag$ ./rsync -aXNvvvv --stats .. 
cmd=<NULL> machine=<NULL> user=<NULL> path=/Users/lag/rsynctest
cmd[0]=. cmd[1]=/Users/lag/rsynctest
note: iconv_open("US-ASCII", "US-ASCII") succeeded.

It crashes without creating any single file on destination.

I'm stopping by now, maybe I'll continue with some work on it tonight. 
But I'm already very happy that it compiles and works a little. It's in 
the right way :)

As always, if someone knows where this bus error comes from, feel free 
to help...
