svn:externals in an added directory

Hi,

We want to add a new directory with files to subversion. The newly added
files refers to sources from another URL. So we set svn:externals to
this directory. To ensure that our make works before committing the
changes we need to see the svn:externals. How can we achieve this?

At the moment we have to commit the new directory/files first, then
updating it to resolve the externals, start the make and then commit
changes a second time. So we have two commits for one logical change.
This conflicts with our understanding of a changeset. And furthermore it
can leave the head of the repository in a not compilable state if the
make fails after the first commit.

This also happens if we merge a branch with a new directory and
svn:externals back to the trunk. So working on a feature branch is no
solution to us.

Any sugg! estions?

Best
George
