  Description     : rsync optimised for BackupPC backup utility

Rsync-bpc is a customized version of rsync that is used as part of
BackupPC, an open source backup system.

The main change to rsync is adding a shim layer (in the subdirectory
backuppc, and in bpc_sysCalls.c) that emulates the system calls for
accessing the file system so that rsync can directly read/write files
in BackupPC's format.
