You might be intending to do one of the following (I don't know which one):
(1) Simply remove the external from the directory and hence not checkout the
external
(2) Entirely discard the directory referenced by the external.

(1) From the above directory (/pt/w/b/b14?), execute the following commands
- svn pedit svn:externals .
   -- edit the line that contains vendor/plugins/active_scaffold and close
the editor
- svn ci .

(2) From the above directory (/pt/w/b/b14?), execute the following commands:
- svn delete vendors/plugins/active_scaffold
- svn ci vendors/plugins/active_scaffold
   -- note that at this step, (a) you have to check in the changes and (b)
if you just execute "svn ci", it will not check in changes to the externals
- then repeat the steps in (1) because once this directory is deleted, you
don't want another directory referencing it.
