Port notes

To use the rsyncd server you must copy ${prefix}/etc/rsyncd.conf.example to rsyncd.conf and add your modules there. See 'man rsyncd.conf' for more information. A startup item has been generated that will aid in starting rsync with launchd. It is disabled by default. Execute the following command to start it, and to cause it to launch at startup:

sudo port load rsync
