Installing Ricty fonts

$ brew tap sanemat/font
$ brew install ricty
# (generate)
$ cp -f /PATH/TO/RICTY/fonts/Ricty*.ttf ~/Library/Fonts/
$ fc-cache -vf

Troubleshooting

The dependencies require that I install XQuartz

Fontforge's dependencies, Cairo and Pango, install with X11 support by default and depend on XQuartz, so you might get an error like the following:

cairo: XQuartz is required to install this formula.
You can install with Homebrew Cask:
  brew install Caskroom/cask/xquartz

You can download from:
  https://xquartz.macosforge.org
pango: XQuartz is required to install this formula.
You can install with Homebrew Cask:
  brew install Caskroom/cask/xquartz

You can download from:
  https://xquartz.macosforge.org
Error: Unsatisified requirements failed this build.

Cairo and Pango can be manually installed without X11 support, which will eliminate the need for XQuartz. To install without XQuartz, execute the following:

brew install --without-x11 cairo && brew install --without-x11 pango
brew install ricty

I get a Python error during brew install fontforge

If you get an error during brew install fontforge, like below:

==> Patching
==> ./bootstrap
==> ./configure --prefix=/Users/sane/.homebrew/Cellar/fontforge/20141230 --disable-silent-rules --without-x --without-giflib --without-libspiro
installed software in a non-standard prefix.

Alternatively, you may set the environment variables PYTHON_CFLAGS
and PYTHON_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
See the pkg-config man page for more details.

Quick fix (work around)

Execute the following:

# Install python before installing fontforge and ricty
brew install python
# Then install fontforge and ricty
brew install ricty

Long help (my environment)

I use homebrew of course, but I don't use homebrew's python. I use pyenv via anyenv. In the homebrew build script, your PKG_CONFIG_PATH is not used; there is homebrew's PKG_CONFIG_PATH. You can try this brew sh and printenv | grep PKG_CONFIG_PATH.

The fontforge configuration script doesn't detect pyenv's python (I think, but I'm not famliar with autoconf yet, sorry). I don't understand why this doesn't detect the system python (after I execute pyenv global system).

The following is the debug output of brew install fontforge --verbose --debug:

detected a homebrew build environment

Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
installed software in a non-standard prefix.

Alternatively, you may set the environment variables PYTHON_CFLAGS
and PYTHON_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
See the pkg-config man page for more details.

The actual solution is detecting system python here, but I don't know how to detect this yet.
