Have you tried compiling rsync statically (on a non-Chrome OS system)
and seeing if it will run on Chrome OS?  Linux is Linux, after all.

If you don't want to compile the static binary yourself, you could try
searching for a prebuilt binary.  For example, I found the following,
but I cannot vouch for its trustworthiness.

(I also don't know if you can even run any third-party binary
executables on Chrome OS if you are not in developer mode.)
