So I removed the edit I made to the builds.txt file. I' am not sure I
completely understand how you think I should edit the
tool-data/bwa_index.loc file. Previously it contained only the following
line (tab delimited):

ecoli   ecoli   ecoli

When I open the Map with BWA for Illumina tool in Galaxy, there are no
reference genomes to select from when I have "Use a built-in index"

I've previously examined the comments in the tool-data/bwa_index.loc file.
I interpreted that I need one line in the tool-data/bwa_index.loc file for
each "index set". Just to be clear, you aren't suggesting that I add five
additional lines for the files with the .amb, .ann, .bwt, .pac, and .sa
extensions? So my tool-data/bwa_index.loc file contains:

ecoli   ecoli   ecoli
ecoli   ecoli   ecoli
ecoli   ecoli   ecoli
ecoli   ecoli   ecoli
ecoli   ecoli   ecoli
ecoli   ecoli   ecoli

I tried that and it does not work. Your response is appreciated.
