Your order of arguments for svn:externals is backwards. It should be
"local" directory, then the remote URL (I think).

Try this (assuming that trunk doesn't exist yet in "elephant". BTW,
that sounds really weird when read aloud :) )

cd c:\sandbox\elephant
md trunk
svn add trunk
cd trunk
svn propset svn:externals aeryn http://aeryn.tigris.org/svn/aeryn/trunk
