externals with MacOS

I have Revolution 1.1.1Classic, running under Mac OS 9.2.2.

I built the externals project (the PPC target) using CodeWarrior, but 
cannot seem to get the externals to be recognized.

The code resource is in the file created by CodeWarrior.

I put the compiled CODE resource file in the Revolution folder, but 
using the "External Tutorial.rev" stack, it fails when I try to use 
the "sprintf" button, or any of the others.

I also tried putting it in the same folder as the stack, and in the 
plugins folder, but to no avail.

Am I putting the file in the wrong place? Does it need a special 
extension or name?
Below is the message in the error window.

Any pointers from those who have gone before?
