While installing GTK using the program, this error message appeared:

*** Configuring subversion *** [9/28]
./ --prefix /Users/user/gtk/inst
invalid parameter: '--prefix'
*** Error during phase configure of subversion: ########## Error running ./ --prefix /Users/user/gtk/inst    *** [9/28]

I also saw this error message while the bison module was installing:

               from lib/math.c:3:
lib/math.h:27:23: error: #include nested too deeply

I am running Mac OS 10.4. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Try adding attribute `autogen-sh="configure"` to the subversion element in ~/Source/jhbuild/modules/bootstrap.modules.

I didn't find the file you suggested. Did you mean ~/Source/jhbuild/modulesets/bootstrap.modules? This was added to the file I found:
<dep package="subversion" autogen-sh="configure"/>   <!-- Needed for Tiger, skipped otherwise -->

I ran jhbuild again but I saw this error message again:
./ --prefix /Users/user/gtk/inst
invalid parameter: '--prefix'

Sorry, yes, that's the file I meant, but a dependency line isn't going to have any effect on the package build. Builds are controlled by the packages own module, so you need to add the line to line 59, changing <autotools id="subversion"> to   <autotools id="subversion" autogen-sh="configure">.

"bison" is bison v3 which is known not to compile on 10.4. Add a line
to your jhbuildrc and then separately run

Where is the jhbuildrc file located? I found a ~/Source/jhbuild/jhbuild/defaults.jhbuildrc file. Is that it?

No. I meant ~/.jhbuildrc-custom. 

I was able to install bison 3.0.4 using TigerBrew. Is there a way I could this version of bison? Same situation of SVN.

Yes, in both cases you need only the tool so there are no linkage issues. If they're in your path you can add

to ~/.jhbuildrc-custom
