OS X Externals

No, just the name.  However, I have now tried using the EnhancedQT 
external, just to see how that one worked (place it where in order for 
it to work), and placing it in the Rev folder causes it to work, even 
w/o the full path in "the externals of this stack", and the 
externalFunctions does return a list of functions.

I placed my external in the same place, but have an empty list of 
externalFunctions.  Apparently something is wrong, either in my C 
source code, or in the build process.
