ok, sorry for that

you're right. what i wanted to say is that it's confusing to be allowed 
to chose a new externals location and then not being able to use it with

the [declare] help file says that the "-lib" flag only searches 
"relative to the patch". which is why i never used it.

if f.e. "cyclone" is added to the searchpaths at startup (either in the 
preferences or in a script with the -path flag) i don't have to declare 
it anymore.

the declare object as i use it, is only to make sure that an external is 
loaded when it is NOT in the startup search path.

anyway, thanks for all your time and patience in this !
