Indeed rsyncd is not running as a service.

Any reason you don't simply change your usage to:

    rsync -avz rtoy at common.lisp.net:/project/cmucl/cvsroot cmucl/cvsroot

using "rsync over ssh" instead of "rsyncd"?

I've never used rsyncd before, as I understand it to be more intended
for one-to-many (i.e. public mirrors) than one-to-one (i.e. differential
backup) use cases.

If there is some reason that "rsync over ssh" won't work for you, holler
back with some arguments with which I will escalate to discussion with
the other admins.
