Now that's wrong though. The command Merijn gave is actually correct:

svn propset "svn:externals" "DIRNAME svn://URL/" "PATH_TO_SET-

The property name is "svn:externals", the value is "DIRNAME svn://
URL/", and the path on which the property should be set is
"PATH_TO_SET-PROPERTY_ON". The fact that it's not working means that
we're not seeing the complete picture, so I would agree with Phil,
that we need to see the actual unobfuscated command used:
