Did something force the --rsync-path=/usr/local/bin/rsync option in rsync?
 Maybe someone compiled that in as the default RSYNC_PATH setting?  Or maybe
rsync is a shell script that adds that option?

See if you can override it by specifying --rsync-path=rsync

That's the normal default ("rsync"), but someone may have configured rsync
using the --with-rsync-path=/usr/local/bin/rsync option to configure, in
which case you'll need to override it using the option above.
