A heavily patched libical was originally included as part of the kdepim
source code.  For the Trinity project this was split into an external
dependency, as other programs also use libical and there was no more need
for the KDE-specific patches to the upstream code.  This is a dependency
that will need to be filled even for basic functionality.

libcaldav and libcarddav are for the new CalDAV and CardDAV resources, for
korganizer and kaddressbook respectively.  You can disable them, but you
will lose interoperability with newer PIM suites such as Google Calendar
and Zimbra.
