Uhhh... no, I think you're misunderstanding how to use svn:externals. Dale
Worley pointed it out. See http://svnbook.red-bean.com/en/1.1/ch07s03.html.
The format for an external reference is a mapping wherein you say map this
external directory to a local directory.

local_dir external_dir

You are trying to set the following:

externals svn://
externals svn://

That says that the local directory "externals" should first point to the
common.h directory and then it should point to the init.h directory. That's
not possible.

You need to do something like:

svn checkout svn://
echo "common.h svn://"
echo "init.h svn://" >>prop
echo "getline.h svn://" >>prop
echo "md5.h svn://" >>prop
echo "user.h svn://" >>prop
svn propset svn:externals -F prop config
svn commit config -m "externals"
rm config -rf
