At least if the URLs are fairly flat, you could use InterWiki syntax. 
Edit data/intermap.txt to add a new InterWiki moniker (let me know if you 
figure out how to do it through editing a wiki page, which the docs seem 
to imply is possible, but I couldn't figure out...).

e.g. from the standard intermap.txt of an InterWiki moniker that refers to 
a non-wiki URL:

RFC http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc

So you then just write RFC:3986 in your wiki markup.
