I got the source and rebuild it since i needed the --backup-dir-dels option.

I sucesfully compiled it within my remote and my host.

I have a little script that is working so i added  the --backup-dir-dels

rsync --owner --group --compress --size-only --stats
--backup-dir-dels=/back_delete --progress --recursive --times --exclude
'*.tmp' --perms --links /data2/ | tee $name_of_log.

I remove a file from the remote and a directory as well but unfortunately i
saw nothing in /back_delete, i tried --backup-dir-dels=/back_delete  and
--backup-dir-dels='/back_delete' but with no luck !

Thanks for the help !
