[ubuntu] Building rsync on Lucid

http://ubuntuforums.org – Hi all. I'm having problems with rsync, caused by using the 3.0.7 client against a server running 3.0.8. (A recent upgrade on the server precipitated problems which I see in bug reports dating back years.) I'm on Lucid and not ready to upgrade, and there's no backport or ppa for rsync, so I'd like to build rsync 3.0.8 or 3.0.9 on Lucid. Does anyone have any experience with this? Is it feasible? All help appreciated, Martin (Hardware)
