It's sad that Apple is still shipping rsync version 2.6.9, but with OS X
10.7 (as near as I can tell from what I read on the net) and newer it's
patched to handle extend attributes and resource forks. Note, however, that
at some point the meaning of options have changed: -E has different
meanings and the older version doesn't support the -X/-xattrs option that
replaces the old use of -E.

Macports will install version 3.1.1.

I'm not a fan of fink (Why install a GNU environment when you have a
perfectly good UNIX(™) environment already?) and I chose Macports over
Homebrew, but I don't remember why.
