Trying to cross-compile rsync 3.2.3 for an M1 Mac

On an Intel Mac, I'm trying to cross-compile rsync 3.2.3 for an M1 Mac. I
configured like this:

./configure \
CFLAGS='-target arm64-apple-macos' \
--host=aarch64-apple-darwin \
--prefix=/opt/fred \
--with-rsyncd-conf=/opt/fred/etc/rsyncd.conf  \
--disable-openssl \
--disable-xxhash \
--disable-zstd \
--disable-lz4 \

configure ran well enough, but unfortunately I'm running into the following
issue at the end of the compilation:

note: previous definition is here
#define snprintf(str, len, ...) \
1 warning generated.
gcc -I./zlib -I./popt -target arm64-apple-macos -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -Wall -W

ld: warning: ignoring file lib/md5-asm-x86_64.o, building for macOS-arm64
but attempting to link with file built for unknown-x86_64

Undefined symbols for architecture arm64:

ld: symbol(s) not found for architecture arm64

clang: error: linker command failed with exit code 1 (use -v to see

make: *** [rsync] Error 1

It seems that the rsync source tarfile includes lib/md5-asm-x86_64.S, but
for my compilation to work, I need a file called lib/md5-asm-aarch64.S ?

Where would I get this file? (or how would I build my
own lib/md5-asm-aarch64.S ?)
