So, i’m taking my first baby steps - i have a modules file with just boilerplate xml

<?xml-stylesheet type="text/xsl" href="moduleset.xsl"?>
   <include href=""/>


and a boilerplate configuration

[gtk@Daves-i7:~]$ more .jhbuildrc-custom
moduleset=os.environ['HOME'] + '/freeciv.modules’

This is more of a python nit: It's better to use moduleset = os.path.join(os.environ['HOME'], 

yet jhbuild doesn’t like something…

[gtk@Daves-i7:~]$ echo $PATH
[gtk@Daves-i7:~]$ jhbuild build freeciv
jhbuild build: A module called ''freeciv'' could not be found.
Usage: jhbuild [ -f config ] command [ options … ]

I did a web search for "jhbuild build: A module called '''' could not be found.” and got nothing useful.  
What am i doing wrong?

You went for two babysteps instead of one, and fell over as babies so often do. You didn't define a module 
with id="freeciv", so jhbuild doesn't know wha to do.
Have you run `jhbuild bootstrap` and `jhbuild build meta-gtk-osx-bootstrap` yet? The first uses a special 
moduleset, but the second is universally required and will work with only the 'include' directive in your 
skeletal moduleset.
