The issue is that your're doing a local copy, and rsync isn't properly
validating that the sender supports symlink conversions when doing a local

You can work around the issue by putting the support/lsh script on your path
somewhere, adding -e lsh to your rsync command, and making one of the args use
a localhost hostname.  i.e., change the command in your test script to this:

rsync -ae lsh --iconv utf8,$SECONDARY_ENCODING \

I'm checking in a fix into the git repository that makes local copies work.
