1. Run `svn status | grep ^X` to get all the entries in the working copy that are svn:externals.
2. Ignore them as you traverse across the paths.
While reading the svn:externals directly is also a good idea, you'd have to do that for every directory you enter into, since they are namespace specific.
The nice thing about `svn status| grep ^X` is that it will traverse the entire working copy and tell you about ALL svn:externals - even those inside of the svn:externals.
SVN's bindings may provide some better help in there, so definitely look at those too as there may be yet a better solution.

you probably want to look at
