You know, your inability to follow directions is really frustrating.  
It doesn't say anywhere that you should run .jhbuildrc-custom, just  
download it into your home directory. If it needed to have a .sh on  
the end, it already would.

So change the name back and do the next step in the instructions,  
which is:
$ jhbuild build

It will build. It will take a while (2 hours or so on my Mac Pro).
$ mkdir ~/gtk/inst/tmp
$ ~/gtk/inst/bin/gnucash
