OS X Externals

I am trying to build an external for OS X (which I will eventually need 
to get working under Windows as well).  There should be no outside 
dependencies from the external itself, other than the standard libc.  
The external contains two functions.

I tried various things, and finally ended up with a .bundle file, 
courtesy of XCode.  I tried several different placements of the file, 
and have the name of the bundle in the externals property of my main 
stack, but using 'answer the externalFunctions of this stack' from the 
msgbox always results in an empty message box (just the ever-present OK 

I cannot tell if Rev is not finding my external, if my external was not 
built correctly (found but considered corrupt and silently ignored), or 
if it is somehow being considered an 'empty' external (a valid external 
with no functions).

Could anyone help me to debug this problem?  Thank you!
