The short answer is that you want the ALL_BUILD scheme.
For more info look for the section "Using Xcode on OS X" in
gnucash/cmake/README_CMAKE.txt in the source tree. I've used XCode with
GnuCash quite a lot and it works fine. I don't, however, use jhbuild to
build it. Instead I install all the dependencies using MacPorts and
then run cmake and either XCode or scodebuilt to build it. This may be
relevant since the result is a traditional out-of-source build tree not
a MacOS package. This may or may not matter.
It's much faster, by the way, to let XCode do the build than using
xcodebuild. The latter seems to single-thread the build while XCode
does parallel builds. At least that's what it seems like, I haven't
really verified that.
