Thanks for your reply. I just figured what was going on. Was using
rsync to Mac osx. The rsync version downloaded from fink does have
the option for --remove-source-files. The native version of rsync
that comes with Mac osx (Darwin 8.10.0) does not. The native version
is in the PATH.
The rsync script that I'm trying to configure will be connecting to a
BSD box, pulling down old mail archive files and then removing them
from the source systems.
All is good.
