Apparently. Or rather, there appears to be some creep in the general
direction of adding further build dependencies to one's environment.

As I experienced yesterday in a separate incident, seeking to try out
mariadb and a few other gnome/gtk resources, before removing it all
again, installing virtually anything from HomeBrew pollutes your LO-dev
environment with pkgconfig foo which then promptly tells you
to remove or alter your path settings. So, still incompatible with LO's
build environment and I would still recommend against using HomeBrew.
