Sorry about the confusion, I should have been more clear. The FreeBSD version
is built with --with-included-zlib=no by default.

After reading the man page entry again about -z, --compress there seems to be a
confusion about how to use -z.

I was prompted about this by a user who's seen the following warning which
didn't appear in the previous version while using -z:

--- warning begins here ---
This rsync lacks old-style --compress due to its external zlib.  Try -zz.
Continuing without compression.
--- warning ends here ---

Even though this warning is new it seems like -zz should have been used all
