Making rsync compile under Mac OS X 10.3.9 with extended

Sorry about spamming the list. This update is just to say that I have
tested solutions 1 and 2 and there is no solution:
1) If I configure with --disable-acl --enable-xattr, configure is OK
but make can't compile xattr.c because it seems linked to ACL code...
2) The versions disponible at darwinport and fink are unpatched
(without extended-attributes) or just avaliable for 10.4+.
So I would really need to compile it from source, if someone have a
magic argument like --compile-on-10.3-with-xattr-without-acl...
