I've tried to change the wc layout to include just the libraries. Then
I checked the space they need: more than 50MB for the external libs
only!! That's just too much to add to the working copy. Also, by doing
that we would loose valuable information in the crashreports, because
the debug info would be missing or be incomplete for those libs.

So, I got it working the "old" way: including the sources of the
external libs and building them from our build script.
