One way to do what you seem to be looking for might be something like
this. Note that this is not using svn:externals (I'm not a big fan of
it honestly), and it does introduce another step into the checkout
process, although that could be scripted pretty easily.

your top level repository layout looks like this:


So your top level directory has a 'trunk' directory that holds your
main project. Then there's also a top level 'libs' directory, and
inside that are subdirectories for each operating system you support.
Inside each of those you would put system dependent libraries. Within
the trunk there's an empty libs directory that you will replace with
the appropriate platform specific libs subdirectory. The checkout
process looks like this:

$ svn co file:///tmp/repos/trunk foo
A foo/libs
Checked out revision 3.
$ cd foo
$ svn switch file:///tmp/repos/libs/win32 libs
At revision 3.
$ svn st
    S libs
$ svn info libs | grep URL

So first you check out the trunk, then you switch the platform
specific subdirectory to whatever is appropriate for your current
platform. Is this close to what you were looking for?
