Hi All,

I've been off list for  a while and just got around to building rsync  
3.0.6 on Mac OSX 10.6 intel core 2 duo machine. It runs great on  
similar machines but someone just said it won't for their OSX 10.6  
intel core  duo and returns an error:

rsync  Bad CPU type in executable.

I check the file and it says:

rsync: Mach-O 64-bit executable x86_64

my older builds all automatically came up i386.

I just ran the usual

  patch -p1 <patches/fileflags.diff
     patch -p1 <patches/crtimes.diff

Is this right or should it be i386? and how to I get that back or  
build so it runs on the other maqchine?

Thanks,  Rob
