Hi Dan,
I can give you some links, as in the past I was using rsync to backup OSX data.
https://static.afp548.com/mactips/rsync.html <https://static.afp548.com/mactips/rsync.html> (some old hints about how to compile rsync)
http://www.n8gray.org/code/backup-bouncer/ <http://www.n8gray.org/code/backup-bouncer/> (a script to verify correct backups of OSX data using rsync)

In any case, I think that if you compile rsync by adding the obviously named patches provided with rsync itself, you should be fine. It’s also true that recent OSXs almost don’t use resource forks, if you backup xattrs it should be enough.

Do I need special patches either on my clients or on my OmniOS server (r151012 for now, 014 shortly coming).  There's no rsync changes between 012 and 014 (3.1.1), so if it works for 012, it will keep working.
