	1) rsync is a port.
	2) by default, ports install executables to /usr/local/bin
	3) by default, "do_daily_run" will inherit its environment -
		including PATH - from crontab(5) (system or per-user).
	4) by default, the crontab PATH does not include
		/usr/local/bin.  (There is a reason for this.)

	Recommended solution: provide the full path to rsync.
