When running rsync on a directory that is meant to be a chroot, rsync will
currently not correctly resolve symlinks with absolute targets because
obviously, those targets are meant to be interpreted from inside the chroot.
Because of that, copy-unsafe-links and safe-links cannot be used properly in
those cases.
It would be nice if there was an option to make the rsync client "chroot
