svn:externals is a normal versioned property attached to a directory.
You cannot change history. Whatever value they had in old revisions is
permanent, because versioned revision data is immuatable.

--revprop is only for changing *unversioned* properties attached to the
revisions themselves, like svn:log. That's useless here. All you've
done is create a new unversioned 'svn:externals' property attached to a
revision. It's completely unrelated to the versioned property attached
to the specific directory.
