The problem is with how sbopkg downloads the file, I'm not sure what would be
the best way to get around this though in the sbopkg. The download link is
http://culot.org/cgi-bin/get.cgi?calcurse-2.5.tar.gz, wget saves this as
get.cgi?calcurse-2.5.tar.gz while the SlackBuild is looking for

For a manual fix simply:
mv /home/sbo/12.2/office/calcurse/get.cgi?calcurse-2.5.tar.gz /home/sbo/12.2/office/calcurse/calcurse-2.5.tar.gz
(If you're using the default sbopkg repository location)
