Did you delete an entire external directory, or just an item inside a
directory which is an external? I would have expected "svn up" in any
parent directory to restore an entire deleted external. But if you
delete an item inside a directory which is an external, you probably
have to run "svn up" on the external directory itself, not on one of
its parents.
