Charles fixed a serious bug in rsync (promotion of a comparison to unsigned
resulting in it always being true on LP64 platforms, or, more correctly,
any platform where sizeof(off_t) == sizeof(size_t)) and I discovered that
my typo on a cron job was preventing rsync.netbsd.org from updating *at all*
anyway (not, mind you, that updating with corrupt data would have done you
much more good!). Everything ought to be fine now.
