but, for some reason, you want LibICAL (source).

You google "libical".
The second result is
"libical/libical GitHub"
(
​this ​
looks more promissing, "libical" is shown twice, for emphasis I suppose)

Click on the link.

At the big page "GitHub libical/libical",
click on "3 releases" link.

At the "Libical version 1.0.1", under "Downloads"

- if you click on "libical-1.0.1.tar.gz"
you'll end up with a 'libical-1.0.1.tar.gz'
with an MD5 of
d26a58149aaae9915fa79fb35c8de6fc
(720618 bytes)

- if you click on "Source code (tar.gz)"
you'll end up with a 'libical-1.0.1.tar.gz'
with an MD5 of
af91db06b22559f863869c5a382ad08a
(720618 bytes)

which shows that
​ after all​
, as Einstein used to say,
everything in life is relative.

Absolutely yours,
