No. I ended up using two rsyncs, one for PPC and one for intel. The  
two actually are smaller than the the one universal and I  
programatically check for the architecture in my wrapper app and use  
the appropriate one stored in resources. I would be interested in a  
universal rsync for sure. I tried Wayne's suggestion :

"I'd suggest editing byteorder.h and changing the defines near the start
to ensure that CAREFUL_ALIGNMENT is defined to 1.  That should ensure
that the code always converts values into the host's proper byte-order."

But it didn't work- it compiled ok and the system said it was a  
universal binary but the crtimes would work only on the intel side.....

I will do some more experimenting when I get a chance.
