You also need to check out the "packages" directory. In fact, it's best
to check out everything in trunk once.

This works for some externals, but mrpeach doesn't have its own makefile
(AFAIK). The global build system is the only global one actively
maintained, so unless someone comes  up with and maintains a better one,
that's all there is.
