Externals in OS X

Hello everyone,

I'm having a really bad day, only about 80% of which is due to 
Revolution :-( At the moment I feel like running around screaming 
before ending up sobbing a corner, so any help would be gratefully 

I am trying to compile an app which uses MySQL but it won't work.
I'm trying to compile another app which uses XML but it won't work.
I'm trying to compile a third app which uses speech but it won't work.

They all work perfectly in the IDE.

I have just filed a bug reporting how the speech & XML externals do not 
get copied into the bundle when making a standalone in OS X and how 
even if they are copied over manually, they still don't work.

In the case of the database externals, they ARE copied over 
automatically, but they still don't work. This may be the same problem, 
but I never had any such problems with earlier versions although I 
haven't used externals in standalones much.

I have tried the usual techniques of explicitly setting the externals 
and making sure I start using the stack with the externals, but nothing 
is working. If anyone has any ideas, I would be very grateful. I am 
using Rev 2.5 build 1 (or whatever today's version is called).
