I tried again with fresh rsync3.0 builds for both arch's and lipo's
them together. Tested on PPC Leopard and Tiger, It now shows perfect
score on the metadata test and creation dates ok too! Now waiting to
hear from intel friends. I assume that side will work fine as it did
So we may now have a universal binary rsync for OSX. Great! Not sure
what lipo does exactly as it just seems to double the size of rsync.
Does it just provide both versions inside with a gate directing the
present architecture to the right one? Rob
