Own fontsuite with standalone ?

Maybe there's something I'm doing wrong, but I don't see what it is.
Or perhaps there is no "ext_loadFont" in this "EXT.dll" file.
Here's what I did: I message-box-typed
set the externals of this stack to "/Applications/Revolution Dreamcard
after which I saved the stack, quit Revolution, then relaunched
(opening the same stack). Just to check, I bring out the message box
[put] the externals of this stack
and Rev dutifully replies "/Applications/Revolution Dreamcard
2.5.1/components/global environment/EXT.dll" (w/o the quotes of
course), showing that it "remembered". I now hold my breath and type
and, to my dismay, I get the familiar "Message execution error: Error
description: Handler: can't find handler" no-go response.
Poking around the docs, I noticed related Xscript properties, the
externalCommands and the externalFunctions. So I tried each of these
too, e.g. "answer the externalCommands of this stack", getting an empty
dialog in each case. Shouldn't these properties return something other
than empty once I've loaded a file of externals? I'm wading in what
are uncharted waters for me, so my intuitions are probably faulty, but
what's wrong with this picture?
