Update libical to 1.0 in rawhide the next week (soname version bump)

there was a release of libical 1.0 recently [1], and I'd like to update
rawhide with it. It seems to be API compatible with 0.48, they only
bumped the soname version due to version jump to 1.0. Rex Dieter helped
me to fix a spec file to it (to use cmake), thus I plan to push the
change around May 23rd, 2013, aka at the end of the next week.

I tried to build evolution packages locally against it and there was no
build issue, thus it might be just about rebuilding other dependent
packages [2] and check whether any workarounds for 0.48 are still needed
(I see some changes in iCalendar file saving, most notably with
timezones (nothing serious with respect of functionality, saved files
are only significantly larger due to saving whole history of daylight
saving time changes) and string escaping, with which were couple issues
in 0.48). Maybe there will be more packages due to transitive dependency
(like other evolution packages is missing in [2]).

I'll take care of the rebuild of packages I've commit rights for,
the rest will be left for respective maintainers.
