Comment (by Schamschula):

 Taking a look!

 It looks to me as if Homebrew is still using Python 2.7...

 As usual, {{{cmake}}} gives a warning about not finding {{{openmpi}}}.
 I'll ignore that for the time being.

 The next problem is posed in porting the {{{med-file}}} dependency: the
 patch file
 used by Homebrew no longer exists. I found a version that does not apply
 cleanly. Lots of manual editing. I got this to build. Homebrew is using
 version 3.3.1, but upstream is at version 4.0. I also built version 3.3.1.

 With {{{freecad}}} I get numerous build errors, as 0.18_pre is 2202
 commits behind the development sources. I see little point building using
 the current sources, and will wait for a new snapshot.
