I just package.keyword'ed 1.8.11 and emerged it (why is it still
masked?), and the dense-calendar works fine here.  The font definition
from the source code which is not being found by your system (causing
the assertion failure) is:


I'm nearly positive this is provided
by /usr/share/fonts/100dpi/helvB10.pcf.gz, which equery reports ...

[jsled at phoenix:~]$ equery belongs /usr/share/fonts/100dpi/helvB10.pcf.gz
[ Searching for file(s) /usr/share/fonts/100dpi/helvB10.pcf.gz in *... ]
x11-base/xorg-x11-6.8.2-r2 (/usr/share/fonts/100dpi/helvB10.pcf.gz)

At the same time, I know that line works unmodified with the XFree
server, which I used to use.  Which X server are you using?

Does `xlsfonts` report that font being available, or maybe a similar one ("-*-helvetica-bold-r-[...]"?)
