Very close. I think you are off track with the externals property though. We
don't mess with your externals property settings. It's the rev externals
that are placed in the one externals folder (revXML, revDB etc). Your own
externals can be copied over by referencing them in the copy files screen.
This also uses relative paths so if you have a well structured development
folder you should have no problems.
