This is unexpected fallout from the transition from gcc to clang.
calendar invokes cpp, and it seems that clang's cpp doesn't like what
it sees.  This patch works around the issue:

--- pathnames.h	(revision 242777)
+++ pathnames.h	(working copy)
@@ -32,5 +32,5 @@

 #include <paths.h>

-#define	_PATH_CPP	"/usr/bin/cpp"
+#define	_PATH_CPP	"/usr/bin/gcpp"
 #define	_PATH_INCLUDE	"/usr/share/calendar"

Clearly that's not the solution.  I'll investigate.
