support for simple include and exclude cases
CVSROOT: /cvs Module name: src Changes by: email@example.com 2021/08/29 07:43:46 Modified files: usr.bin/rsync : Makefile extern.h flist.c main.c receiver.c sender.c Added files: usr.bin/rsync : charclass.h rmatch.c rules.c Log message: Implement --exclude/exclude-file and --include/include-file. Currently only simple include and excludes work, the advanced filters introduced later in rsync are not implemented. It is unclear if the per directory filters are something we want to implement. This requires more modern protocols which openrsync is not able to handle right now. This adds a special matching function to allow the ** matching which behaves mostly like rsyncs version with the exception of how bad  patterns are expanded. For bad patterns openrsync follows more how fnmatch behaves and not the somewhat strange rsync behaviour. Not perfect but committing now so people can test and provide feedback
Great stuff! This should further reduce the need for installing the net/rsync port.

Albeit, the last time I was testing openrsync, I discovered I could use openrsync to reproducibly crash rsync on FreeBSD13-CURRENT on a Raspberry Pi 3 and decided rather than try to debug rsync, I would wait for openrsync to mature a bit, I'm grateful to see that it continues to progress!
