------- Comment #2 from wayned at  2008-03-04 23:22 CST -------
Test 11 chooses to anticipate either a hard-linked symlink ("hL") or a
locally-copied symlink ("cL") depending on if it thinks that symlinks can be
hard-linked or not.  The test using "ln" on a dangling symlink should indicate
if that is possible.  It looks like that ln test reports the wrong result, so
the itemize test is expecting "cL" when rsync returns "hL".  Perhaps I should
change that test to grep for CAN_HARDLINK_SYMLINK in the config.h file.

As for the merge test, it appears that you have "cd reldir" output a path, and
that output is causing the diff to fail.  I'll code around such a possibility.
