Re: bin/41945: calendar(1) doesn't recognize days of the week correctly sometimes

Try the patch below.
It seems as if someone believed that
if (f & (A|B))
means "if both A and B are set in f" - that's obvious, as the code
if (f & (A|B))
if (f & A)
/* other stuff */
in which the other stuff cannot possibly be executed, as if A was
set, we would have already returned.
The patch just rewrites those tests to be
if ((f & (A|B)) == (A|B))
which is clearly what the code author intended.
How this has lasted in calendar all this time (and unnoticed) I
hate to imagine - I guess very few people ever use this thing
(and at that, just how many of us system admins do what the man
page says and set the system holiday files correctly for the current year,
