Ah, thanks.  websvn doesn't show externals so I didn't notice those when
poking around.  It turns out that 'ignore externals' was ticked by default
on the checkout.

Accounts available to those who want them.  It's an Atom N2800 dedicated
server with 500GB HDD so isn't quick, but the aim is to just let it
churn building autobuilder stuff, and then it's easier to keep packages
buildable and up to date.
