 A couple of notes.

 Technically popt is a required dependency, although if there isn't a
 system pop (installation) available, rsync will be happily use its bundled

 required, then we should toggle this switch, i.e., "--without-included-

 And just for the shake of completeness, yodl [1] is an optional
 dependency, although is dead upstream and superseded than texinfo, so I
