rsynced files not getting proper ACL

view story

http://serverfault.com – I use rsync (rsync-3.0.6-5.el6_0.1.x86_64 on Scientific Linux 6) to transfer files from a VFAT disk to an NFS mounted ext3 file system. I have ACLs set up on the ext3 system and all works as expected when i.e. creating new files or dirs (through the NFS mount, via command line or Nautilus). But when rsync-ing or cp-ing, ACLs are not created for the copied files on the ext3 partition. The background is the VFAT is from a camera, intermittently mounted, and does not create acls for dirs or files. Is there a way to rsync (or even copy) that lets i.e. the default ACL rules apply ACLs to rsync- (HowTos)
