           Summary: cannot find popt.h at compile time
           Product: rsync
           Version: 3.0.0
          Platform: x86
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P3
         Component: core
        AssignedTo: wayned at
        ReportedBy: shawn.t.rutledge at
         QAContact: rsync-qa at

When compiling I get this:

options.c:24:18: error: popt.h: No such file or directory

The fix is here:

After changing it to #include "popt/popt.h", rsync builds.

I would suggest fixing the configure script to find out whether it will be
necessary to use the "system" one or the "local" one.

(apparently on the MontaVista-based system I'm working with, the library is
included but the header is not... I'm not sure why.)
