Thanks to Scott and Brian for their help.

I can now get my external to run.

Turns out the latest CodeWarrior has some problems with merging into 
an existing file which really didn't help.

I'm a bit confused here. I built the external separately and put it 
into the stack using Resorcerer and all seems to be well in both Mac 
OS 9.2.2 and Mac OS X (10.1.5). Should I be doing something different 
for OS X? Or are there a separate engines for Mach-O and carbon?

According to the Transcript dictionary the externals property is not 
available in OS 9 or X.

Either way I've got my code working, thanks,
