No.  libical is maintained upstream in a separate source control system;
the Trinity project merely uses it and does not have any control over it
(rather like Qt).

OK, I'm going to make them both required.  They are less than 150Kb each
when built and add significant functionality.  As these two libraries
originated within the Trinity project, and are maintained by the same, I
also agree that they should be placed in svn/dependencies.

Yeah, I find it annoying as well.  This looks like it might work (I
haven't tried it yet):
