The syntax is 'svn propset PROPNAME PROPVALUE [TARGET]'.

In your command above, 'project' is being interpreted as the target.
That's not what you want; you want a default '.' target. Try putting
the whole propvalue in quotes:

  svn propset svn:externals "../../generic project1"

Of course, that's still wrong. The PROPVAL should be of the form
"localdir URL". Get a URL in there.
