[PD-dev] [PD] Building Externals

I've made a makefile for mrpeach/osc/
This collection is pretty simple as each external is one file, I'm
attaching my makefile, I'm wondering what changes should be made to
form this into the example makefile to use for externals in the svn?

I'm not sure about the use of the word "TARGETS" here but I couldn't
think of anything better.
