is "rsync --version" reporting the wrong version number, or am I to
stupid to properly install rsync-3-0-5 on a Mac?
Here is what I did:
download and extract rsync-3-0-5 (btw: why is there an extra patches
in Terminal I ran: ./configure, make, sudo make install
There was no error message, and the old /usr/local/bin/rsync was
When I now issue "rsync --version" I get:
rsync version 2.6.9 protocol version 29

Capabilities: 64-bit files, socketpairs, hard links, symlinks,
inplace, IPv6, 32-bit system inums, 64-bit internal inums
which is not what I expected.
Any suggestions what I do wrong?
