Description Robert Ames 2015-12-24 14:45:24 UTC
In 10.2-RELEASE running "calendar -a" as root fails when user calendar files contain #include.  This worked in 10.0-RELEASE (and previous releases).

$ uname -a
FreeBSD freebsd.example.com 10.2-RELEASE FreeBSD 10.2-RELEASE #0: Sun Dec 20 10:00:14 CST 2015     root@freebsd.example.com:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/GENERIC  i386

$ cat ~/.calendar/calendar 
#include <moredates>
$ cat ~/.calendar/moredates 
12/20   Today is December 20
$ calendar

root@freebsd# calendar -a
calendar: can't open calendar file "moredates"

I was asked (http://docs.FreeBSD.org/cgi/mid.cgi?20200928045733.GE72348)
to add my patch to fix this issue here.  This patch is against
11.4-RELEASE.  Note that it requires the installation of the
devel/tradcpp port/package.
