           Summary: Incompatible library version
           Product: rsync
           Version: 3.0.4
          Platform: x86
        OS/Version: Mac OS X
            Status: NEW
          Severity: major
          Priority: P3
         Component: core
        AssignedTo: wayned at
        ReportedBy: david.allie at
         QAContact: rsync-qa at

I compiled 3.0.4 in OS X on an Intel machine. The resulting binary works on
many other Intel Macs, but I've come across some 1.83GHz Core 2 Duo iMacs that
won't run rsync.  Here is the Terminal dump when simply trying to confirm rsync

admin at co-frontdesk
[ ~/.bin ]$ /Users/admin/.bin/rsync-304 --version
dyld: Library not loaded: /usr/lib/libiconv.2.dylib
  Referenced from: /Users/admin/.bin/rsync-304
  Reason: Incompatible library version: rsync-304 requires version 7.0.0 or
later, but libiconv.2.dylib provides version 5.0.0
