I hope this helps. (You did not mention if you built from the Debian or

I built from the latest official stable rsync sources from the official rsync home page, if this means "upstream". Could I build and install the Debian Etch/Sid sources on Sarge? How should I proceed?

setfacl --restore=aclbackup (on the destination machine)
