Thanks for the report! Please include the full invocation the next time, this makes reproducing the issue easier.
Upstream seems to be hacking on jhbuild quite a bit lately, breaking sugar-jhbuild repeatedly as a consequence. I've fixed the exact issue you've reported, only to hit the next one:

Install locale/ml/LC_MESSAGES/ to /home/sascha.silbe/sugar-jhbuild/install/share/locale/ml/LC_MESSAGES/
Install locale/mr/LC_MESSAGES/ to /home/sascha.silbe/sugar-jhbuild/install/share/locale/mr/LC_MESSAGES/
Install locale/te/activity.linfo to /home/sascha.silbe/sugar-jhbuild/install/share/sugar/activities/Chat.activity/locale/te/activity.linfo.
*** Error during phase install of chat: Module failed to install into DESTDIR u'/home/sascha.silbe/sugar-jhbuild/install/_jhbuild/root-chat-broken' *** [1/1]

This is because upstream decided to fail hard on modules that don't support DESTDIR (Gnome#654592) and sugar.activity.bundlebuilder doesn't support DESTDIR yet (SL#2947).

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Summary changed from bug in sugar-jhbuild to installing activities broken due to upstream jhbuild requiring DESTDIR support

Once I figured out what exactly I needed to do, the patch was trivial. Fixed by 5923202.
