Rsync, Cygwin and ACL support

It seems there's no posix acl support in Cygwin, as far as I could see.

The libraries are here if anyone wants to try porting them to Win32 acls:

ftp://oss.sgi.com/projects/xfs/latest/cmd_tars/acl-2.2.15.src.tar.gz 
ftp://oss.sgi.com/projects/xfs/latest/cmd_tars/attr-2.4.8.src.tar.gz
