Rev can't find the external. The "handler" it's missing is one of the 
calls in the external library.

Externals are a little bit advanced. They aren't hard exactly but I'm 
not sure I'd learn Rev with them. This may be something you want to wait 
a while to tackle. On the other hand, if you're game, there are two 
lessons on the web site that cover how to set up and work with a stack 
using externals:
