Thanks for the advice. As it turns out, that's just what I did. I have
been tooling around with a stage3-uclibc tarball for a couple of weeks,
and when I tried to update the profile to a non-deprecated uclibc-mips
profile and rebuild everything, rsync developed a problem where it would
randomly crap out. That's when I decided to start experimenting.
I'll keep looking into it and report back.
