FYI - Broken rsync bootscript

Hey Guys:

Keep forgetting to mention this but I've seen it on the last two rsync 
servers I've set up following the SVN BLFS book.

The bootscript loads rsync with something like:
'rsync --daemon --compress'

Recent rsync apparently doesn't accept the '--compress' option anymore. 
Removing it from the bootscript solves the issue. Not sure how to get 
the functionality that option provided before...
