...aha:  I now see that this was added back about 2 years 
ago...however, I think this is/was a solution to a problem that no 
longer exists on OSX...that is, if we build externals without the 
"-flat_namespace", then they will automatically be built as 
"-twolevel_namespace", and this will prevent the library definition 

...I'm testing this now:  it seems to work with the mixed externals, 
and pdp is already twolevel...so hopefully I'll know more soon...
