sorry to answer your question with a question but....

why do you want to insert nofollow in all of your external links? what is the benefit to that?

Why not just put it into your site's template? Do you have one?

If your site is static, and on a linux server, and you can get to a command prompt, then something like
perl -i -p -e 's/\<a\ /\<a\ rel\=nofollow/g'

or something like that (don't use that above, I don't know what I'm doing :) ). In any regards, perhaps try the linux section here. there's certainly an easy way to do this search and replace, using either the perl pie command or some funky grep command.

Some (probably most of the current generation) HTML editors provide Extended Search and Replace. This only works if your hrefs are standardized. You are certainly standardized in "</a>" and can insert your desired text in advance of that.

plug a regex replace into a script and iterate all of your pages. :)
