Calendar Father's Day patch

The calendar.usholiday file contains 42 lines of which 2 are relevant to June
21, 2015:
06/SunThird     Father's Day (3rd Sunday of June)
06/21*  Summer Solstice

My .calendar/calendar file includes this one line:
#include <calendar.usholiday>

And when calendar runs it should show two lines out, one for Father's Day and
one for the Solstice:

$calendar -t21.6.2015
Jun 21* Summer Solstice

I patched the code (calendar.c and parsedata.c) and the problem seems to be

$calendar -t21.6.2015
Jun 21* Summer Solstice
Jun 21* Father's Day (3rd Sunday of June)

To debug this it was helpful to set the debug_remember flag in
the dates.c code.  This flag is a global integer and can be set from calendar.c
when the -d option (debug) is set.

In parsedata.c, the calculation of the first day of the recurring weekdays is
wrong as it is trying to calculate a day of the month but will always return an
integer in the range 0-6.  0 is always wrong...

It was:
    d = (idayofweek - dow + 8) % 7;

But should be:
    d = (idayofweek - dow + 7) % 7 + 1;  

Additionally the variable dow can be -1 and when it is the code should probably
stop (continue) so a better patch is this:

    if (dow < 0)
    d = (idayofweek - dow + 7) % 7 + 1;
