My answer to the above is inverse of what you are trying to do

What you want to do is create a series of shim projects for each of these
"external" libs, and then just have your CI server roll a release nightly

Don't try to make it all one project, that way madness lies

I'd have the version number of each shim project be the svn revision it is
faking a build of
