           Summary: "rsync -H" Fails on PPC AIX 5.3.0
           Product: rsync
           Version: 3.0.3
          Platform: PPC
        OS/Version: AIX
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P3
         Component: core
        AssignedTo: wayned at
        ReportedBy: mikepublic at
         QAContact: rsync-qa at

I have built rsync 3.0.2 and 3.0.3pre2 using both "gcc" and "cc", neither being
able to handle the hard link option correctly.  This was found while running
the testsuite provided (initially in the "hands" test).  Here is a snippette
from the hands/test.log file:

Test hard links: Running: "/tmp/rsync/rsync-3.0.3pre2/rsync  -avH
sending incremental file list
rsync: connection unexpectedly closed (9 bytes received so far) [sender]
rsync error: error in rsync protocol data stream (code 12) at io.c(635)

The prior test (i.e., with only the "-av" options) ran as expected.

I have compiled version 2.6.2, and it tests fine.  I do not know if there is a
new option I must throw when running ./configure, or if this is a bug in rsync.
 Please advise.  I'm not sure what else I can provide at this time, but please
feel free to ask for whatever I can provide (within reason, of course).  I have
searched this Bugzilla and Google for help, also to no avail.
