The latest rsync will now look into link-dest dirs even for files that exist in
the destination directory hierarchy.  It still requires all preserved
attributes to match for the link to occur, though (e.g. if preserving --times,
the mtime must match).  What it doesn't yet support is an option to tell rsync
to not modify attributes on any hard-linked file in the dest hierarchy (they
still get their attrs tweaked in-place).
