rsync compare directories?

view story

http://unix.stackexchange.com – Is it possible to compare two directories with rsync and only print the differences? There's a dry-run option, but when I increase verbosity to a certain level, every file compared is shown. ls -alR and diff is no option here, since there are hardlinks in the source making every line different. (Of course, I could delete this column with perl.) (HowTos)
