The root cause of this problem seems to be that
/usr/local/include/libical is not in the include path.  

icalss.h includes these other header files without specifying the
subdirectory.  I.e., it does the following:

#include <icalcomponent.h>

Since it's not on the include path, icalcomponent.h is reported as not

Adding CFLAGS+=-I${LOCALBASE}/include/libical to the port Makefile fixes

BTW, I haven't confirmed this yet, but the orage configure step seems to
enable libical support if the library is found, overriding the WITH_ICAL
option.  When I put the above CFLAGS line inside the if block for
WITH_ICAL, and set the option to OFF, the build still failed with the
same errors listed above.  It shouldn't have mattered whether or not my
CFLAGS line was executed, because it shouldn't have been compiling any
ical-related stuff. But it was.
