It's the same problem I reported. Indeed, I made the effort to have
/usr/local/bin appear early, if not first, in my profile. That is not
enough to solve this problem. As earlier posters who responded to my
initial inquiry reported, you must explicitly specify the rsync you wish
to use. So your rsync command should look like this at the start:

sudo /usr/local/bin/rsync --rsync-path=/usr/local/bin/rsync you actually want to do with rsync>

Either Mike Bombich knows something the rest of us don't, or he was just
lucky with his setup. Take your pick. Good luck! I know I'm going to
need it.

Thank you to everyone who responded to my inquiry! Your assistance is
