Brew installs into /usr/local which can if it duplicates files (esp. libraries or header files) in MacPorts, cause problems, because apparently not all tools MacPorts must use for building can be persuaded to ignore /usr/local in their search for files - so they might find and use the wrong version.
That said, you may get away with a LITTLE of it without too much problem; I have, so far. :-)
