Yeah I ran that version too for a short time, but realised that it's  
not currently being maintained.  The build is over 1 year old.

Although I usually agree with you on this point, because Darwin  
calendar is in suck flux and the Debian build doesn't seem to have  
been maintained for sometime (nearly a year) I think you might be  
coming up against an issue which has long since been fixed in trunk.

I've written some very simple instructions which document how to  
install Darwin from source in Centos here: http://www.rho.cc/index.php/linux2/48-misc/48-installing-darwin-calendar-server-on-centos-5
