I had what I wold consider a common typo in the .fdf file and I got this confusing error message:

build.py...
/Users/fish/work/EmulatorPkgEmulatorPkg.fdf(162): error 3000: Invalid syntax/format
	expected Region Data type near line 161, column 52: gAppleEfiTokenSpaceGuid.PcdAppleFvASize

The bug is "Fv" vs. "FV". So it looks like line 162 is correct, but the extra data about 161 is a broken error message. Seems like we should check for typos, or at least print out the fact that Fv is not valid syntax. 

0x007E0000|0x10000
gAppleEfiTokenSpaceGuid.PcdAppleFvAAddress|gAppleEfiTokenSpaceGuid.PcdAppleFvASize
Fv=FvA

Thanks,

Andrew Fish
