A while ago I put MacPorts instructions on the harfbuzz homepage.  In particular:

To start from git, do this:

sudo port install autoconf automake libtool pkgconfig ragel gtk-doc
sudo port install freetype glib2 cairo

If you can tell me the brew equivalent of those I'll add to the page.  Like:

brew install autoconf automake libtool pkg-config ragel gtk-doc??
brew install freetype glib cairo?
