Making rsync compile under Mac OS X 10.3.9 with extended attributes

Somebody knows if it's possible to compile rsync (version 3 would be
great, but can be 2.6.x) under Mac OS X 10.3.9 with extended attributes?
Under OS 10.3.9 the Apple shipped rsync have not yet the -E argument
option. RsyncX have a double free bug that is annoying. "Q" rsync
2.6.6 with extended attributes binary only works on 10.4 and above.
I have tried to compile rsync from source but the problem I found is
that the xattr patch seems to need the acl patch. But 10.3 doesn't
have the ACL support so doesn't provides the expected headers and the
make command fails.
I will try out 2 more things:
1) Ignore the instructions of xattr patch and do not apply the acl
patch before xattr (but if those instructions are there, I'm almost
sure it's for a good reason...)
2) Try to get a patched rsync via fink or darwinport
But I would appreciate any help or feedback about compiling a extended-
attribute rsync on 10.3.9, even more if it's the last version (meaning
that rsync could still progress on those macs and the development is
not closed for them).
