Hi everyone, sorry for my belated reply.

I have (and am using for the past year or so) librsync 2.3.0 and rdiff-backup 
2.0.5 on Slackware64 -current. I have my slackbuilds at [0] and [1].

Unfortunately I don't have much time to keep maintaining my slackbuilds 
anymore, and I'll probably stop using Slackware altogether in the near future, 
so feel free to take over maintenance of these two slackbuilds if you can.


PS: CC'ing SBo to keep them in the loop.
