There is a new version (2.0.4) which fixes this bug and adds a few new

OCaml packaging guidelines. If it can't be fixed for F9, then rawhide should
probably be updated if it has not been already.
It's probably better to just upgrade, although we'll need to rebuild
every library which depends on ocaml-calendar, unless we're lucky and
the MD5 sums happen to still match. Dependent libraries are:
