how belatedly copy ACLs?

My original has Posix ACLs (they work fine, that's not
the issue). I screwed up my backup by forgetting to
copy the ACLs. But now my backup isn't right and I
want to fix it. Using the right `rsync` with the right
parameter isn't enough to fix the problem. Even the
right `rsync` sees this as "no change" and doesn't
copy anything (since the file contents haven't
changed, the ACLs haven't changed either, and quite a
few of the 'files' are really directories [often
empty] which seem to be
handled a little differently).
How can I get `rsync` to understand that "ACL vs.
noACL" is a "difference"?
Alternatively, supposing I give up on getting `rsync`
to actually understand, how can I just "force" it to
deal with every single file ...even the ones it
thinks haven't changed?
