Is there a separate opkg that can be installed in order to enable -z (--compress) for rsync? Or could the OpenWrt rsync package be rebuilt with zlib enabled by default?

Did you try -zz instead of -z to compress? This option is not clearly documented in the rsync man page but works with me.
Look for -zz in https://download.samba.org/pub/rsync/rsync.html for details.
If you want to use zlib, you have to rebuild the package and select zlib. See https://github.com/openwrt/packages/blo … c/Makefile
