It looks like you are running a version of SE LINUX. Keep in mind that  
I have not run rsync any SE LINUX system.

However, on Mac OS X an error is reported when ACL's are not enabled  
on a destination partition. As such, you may want to check that ACL's  
are enabled on the destination volume.

Details for enabling ACL's on Mac OS X :

Also, depending upon your distribution, you may find that compiling  
the latest version of rsync for  will help?

Details for compiling rsync version 3 Mac OS X :

Again, I am not sure if this is the problem you are having. However, I  
strongly recommend that you confirm that ACL's are enabled on your  
systems destination partition(s).

Best of luck. I would be interested to know how you resolve this issue.
