I've installed librsync from source and installed rdiff-backup.

`which rdiff-backup` says there isnt one.

So the rdiff-backup binary is not in your $PATH.

would you run `which rdiff-backup` and post the path and perhaps the contents of the file. I'd bet its not a binary.

If I run python /SystemLibrary/Frameworks......./rdiff-backup it runs as expected. Where is the wrapper program that gets invoked by ssh?

Is rdiff-backup really somewhere in /System/Library/Frameworks? That's a very bad place for it to be. You should never put anything in /System in OS X. That's for Apple to put things that relate to the, um, operating system. Either install rdiff-backup in a directory that is in your $PATH or add the directory it's in to your $PATH. I'd suggest using either fink (<http://www.finkproject.org/>) or Darwinports (<http://darwinports.com/>) to install rdiff-backup.

Um, rdiff-backup is a python app which gets installed in the python directory when you run `python setup.py install`. As my production macs have never seen the internet, this is not an option for me. Would *love* to have a step-by-step for compiling and installing from source.
