I guessed that this was because the externals I'm using are all in sub-folders, so I tried copying one across to the main folder. Sure enough, the package now identifies the platform correctly, but I'm not sure what the best course of action is from here. Should I:

the main obstacle here is that this is not really the common use-case for
which deken cmdline is optimized (which is: packaging a single library,
without internal dependencies).

i think that the tool should cover the most common use cases, but there
is no need to support edge cases (the difficulty is obviously in drawing
the line).

well, if the checksum (and/or gpg signature) are missing and you are
using `deken upload` for uploading they will be automatically
(re)generated.  (however, i was thinking about introducing "--gpg=no" and
"--hash=no" args to prevent this (also for packaging).

not sure i totally understand what you mean by this, but it sounds

probably a "--recursive" (or similar) flag to indicate that
subdirectories should be searched recursively would help (please open a
ticket in the issue tracker, if you agree).
it was a conscious decision to *not* do recursive searches by default, i
don't think i want to change that.
