When I try to build WebKit I'm getting the following error:

  [1] Rerun phase configure
  [2] Ignore error and continue to build
  [3] Give up on module
  [4] Start shell
  [5] Reload configuration
  [6] Go to phase "wipe directory and start over"
  [7] Go to phase "clean"
  [8] Go to phase "distclean"

Any idea what's going on. I'm running OSX 10.9.4.

The first line probably explains the problem, you tried to start jhbuild from inside a jhbuild shell. That 
seldom works out well.

That aside, no, there's not enough information there; that's why configure told you to "See `config.log' for 
more details". Once you get the pretty GUI out of the way, OS X is just BSD Unix, so pretty much everything 
you know about Linux applies.
