Attempt to install fontforge with Homebrew on OS X, Build Error with ./bootstrap

Kenneth Reid Beesley
Failed attempt to install fontforge with Homebrew on OS X, Build Error with ./bootstrap

Environment:  OS X Yosemite 10.10.5
                        I performed available updates for OS X (but not to El Capitan)
                        I have and use brew routinely.
                        I did a ‘brew update’ and ‘brew upgrade’ and ‘brew doctor’ before starting.

What I Tried:
        Following instructions on https://github.com/fontforge/fontforge/blob/master/INSTALL-git.md
        I invoked

brew install -v --debug --with-giflib --with-libspiro fontforge —HEAD
At the end of a long trace (full trace available by request) I got the following BuildError:


You may need to use the following Makefile variables when linking.
Use them in <program>_LDADD when linking a program, or
in <library>_a_LDFLAGS or <library>_la_LDFLAGS when linking a library.
  $(GETHOSTNAME_LIB)
  $(INET_NTOP_LIB)
  $(LIBSOCKET)
  $(LTLIBICONV) when linking with libtool, $(LIBICONV) otherwise
  $(LTLIBINTL) when linking with libtool, $(LIBINTL) otherwise

Don't forget to
  - add "lib/Makefile" to AC_CONFIG_FILES in ./configure.ac,
  - mention "lib" in SUBDIRS in Makefile.am,
  - mention "-I m4" in ACLOCAL_AMFLAGS in Makefile.am,
  - mention "m4/gnulib-cache.m4" in EXTRA_DIST in Makefile.am,
  - invoke gl_EARLY in ./configure.ac, right after AC_PROG_CC_C99,
  - invoke gl_INIT in ./configure.ac.

Any suggestions for continuation would be appreciated.
