It updates everything except the dozen or so dependencies that are built from source in gnucash.modules.

Xmlsec has build products committed in the repo so just building creates a change that git can see. The result is that when jhbuild tries to see if the tree has updates it fails with "unable to switch a dirty tree". Just pick "2 - ignore error and continue to configure".
