Hi Matt,

a footnote:
Back on OS 10.5.1, I ran backup bouncer on the compiled OS10.3 rsync  
(without ACL, Xattrs enabled)

Verifying:    basic-permissions ... ok
Verifying:           timestamps ...
    Sub-test:    modification time ... ok
Verifying:             symlinks ... ok
Verifying:    symlink-ownership ... FAIL
Verifying:            hardlinks ... FAIL
Verifying:       resource-forks ... FAIL
Verifying:         finder-flags ... FAIL
Verifying:         finder-locks ... ok
Verifying:        creation-date ... FAIL
Verifying:            bsd-flags ... ok
Verifying:       extended-attrs ...
    Sub-test:             on files ... FAIL
    Sub-test:       on directories ... FAIL
    Sub-test:          on symlinks ... FAIL
Verifying: access-control-lists ...
    Sub-test:             on files ... FAIL
    Sub-test:              on dirs ... FAIL
Verifying:                 fifo ... ok
Verifying:              devices ... ok
Verifying:          combo-tests ...
    Sub-test:  xattrs + rsrc forks ... FAIL
    Sub-test:     lots of metadata ... FAIL

not so good... not sure the results would look any better under 10.3.  
And yet fifo and devices came up shining (the only ones that didn't on  
the 10.5 build)!

Thanks, Rob
