Make a SysFolder somewhere in your pagetree. Put your links in there, using 
the "External URL" pagetypes.

Now, in TS, make a menu, using the 'special = list' property:

lib.bottommenu = HMENU
lib.bottommenu {
  special = list
  special.value = PID_OF_SYSFOLDER

  1 = TMENU
  1 {

The downside is that the links will be rendered as index.php?id=nnn (or as 
SimulateStatic or RealURL, whatever your setup is), and not the actual links, 
and TYPO3 will redirect to the right URL from that page. That is sometimes 
considered bad style for external links, because your don't know where you're 
going before clicking. On the other hand, you get a log-entry everytime 
someone clicks, and that can be equally nice to have.
