Excuse me by the delay, and thanks for your reply.
The problem are:
* I need use the rsync (statically compiled) to rsync files between a esxi-free
4.1 (vmware) and a linux filesystem. 
* Then, I did compile the rsync from sources, in a rhel platform (appropiate to
generate binaries for this version of vmware), and transfer it to esxi host.
* In esxi-free 4.1 (the sender side), we don't have tools to debug.
* I don't have experience with sparse files in other platforms, to test it.

Can you give me a little help to modify the source to add debug information in
the syscall?. I did try it, but, because the size of file is very large, and I
see a lot of debug information.
