Okay, I tried this with rsync linked against Cygwin, and got the same
result. I think the issue is the ":" specifying the drive, as it *does*
work if I do:
rsync -r --delete --exclude=2008 --exclude=mactex*
However, that doesn't go from C:\, but from the current directory. I
guess this is a rsync think: not really related to TeX Live at all.
(I should add that I've had no issues on Windows just downloading the
installer via http then letting it "do its thing".)
