Both systems would need to have an rsync installed that support those
features.  They are a compile time choice and are automatically
disabled if dependencies aren't met.  You can see if they are
supported with 'rsync --version'.  If they are supported that will
list both ACLs and xattrs.

The filesystems must also support them of course.
