Quick method:

change /private/etc/paths putting ahead /usr/local/...

<span style="color: #ff0000;">/usr/local/bin</span>
<span style="color: #ff0000;">/usr/local/sbin</span>

Then, unzip this precompiled rsync into /usr/local/bin

Restart the Terminal and run

rsync --version

This should be the output:

rsync version <span style="color: #ff0000;">3.0.9</span> protocol version 30
