Guard against destination = existing directory

Trying to use rsync to make sure that _dest_ is a regular file
with the same content as file _source_.
If _dest_ already exists and is a symlink, FIFO or device file,
rsync deletes it and creates a regular file in its place. Good.
If _dest_ already exists and is a directory, rsync creates
_dest_/$(basename _source_). Not what I want.
Is there an option similar to GNU install -T or GNU cp -T which
guarantees that if _dest_ exists and is a directory, rsync will
either remove it or fail, but NOT use it as a path ?
Thanks in advance.
