Look for --ignore-externals or --include-externals options in the
output of 'svn help SUBCOMMAND', where SUBCOMMAND is whichever
svn command you're trying to use.

Some subcommands recurse into externals by default, and some don't.
The decision about which should be the default usually involves tradeoffs
between several use cases so there is no single rule for this.

There is some information in the book about this at

And of course in 'svn help'.
