you probably do not want rsync, but cvsup (which in fact uses rsync's
algorithm for binary files) that handles cvs repositories efficiently.

lemme fecth the url for you...

it is in the ports tree of most bsd dists, binaries available from above

at the moment i prefer cvsup over rsync also for mirroring binary files,
because the cvsup daemon does not have any code in it that writes to
files, you can easily configure it to run as cvsupd or nobody user, and
it appears to be much faster for large collections of files because
filelist generation, diff checking and actual copying of the data is
done in a multiplexed, parallel and isochronous fashion.
