Catch output of "svn up" into a file and see whether some changes are
mentioned in it. By the way, this command lists all externals as well.

If you want to trigger a build when something changes in repository -
use a post-commit hook at the svn server.  One option is to use the
hook to publish info into mailing list and watch that mailing list. ;)
