Aaaaahhhh, knew I'd miss some detail.
All the syncs are pushed to the backup server.

But that does give me an idea. I guess I could do that on the source, then sync the flag file over.
rsync -avH ${other_gubbins} / user at remote.machine:/dest/ &&
  touch /etc/donefile &&
  rsync -av ${some_other_gubbins} /etc/donefile user at remote.machine:/dest/

That (or some variation of it) could work.
