I am trying to install imagick using homebrew. The issue is that MagickWand libaries cannot be found.

$ brew install php54-imagick

There is an issue on github for that bug yet it got closed. There seemed to be a fix for that bug, but it got closed and cherry-picking is not possible for me.

As mentioned on this answer : http://stackoverflow.com/a/17848864/2307070

you can try these steps:

wget http://pecl.php.net/get/imagick-3.1.0RC2.tgz
tar zxf imagick-3.1.0RC2.tgz

Edit the file imagick-3.1.0RC2/config.m4 line number 55.

Make changes like this, from

if test -r $WAND_DIR/include/ImageMagick/wand/MagickWand.h;

to

if test -r $WAND_DIR/include/ImageMagick-6/wand/MagickWand.h;

Note this difference made in the imagick version number. After that try the conventional installation procedures

cd imagick-3.1.0RC2
phpize
./configure
make
make install

I was able to install imagick via pecl by providing the config path.

which Wand-config outputs /opt/boxen/homebrew/bin/MagickWand-config.

I removed the bin part, hence the parameter I used for sudo pecl install imagick was /opt/boxen/homebrew/.

This succeeded stating:

Build process completed successfully
Installing '/opt/boxen/homebrew/Cellar/php54/5.4.26/include/php/ext/imagick/php_imagick.h'
Installing '/opt/boxen/homebrew/Cellar/php54/5.4.26/include/php/ext/imagick/php_imagick_defs.h'
Installing '/opt/boxen/homebrew/Cellar/php54/5.4.26/include/php/ext/imagick/php_imagick_shared.h'
Installing '/opt/boxen/homebrew/Cellar/php54/5.4.26/lib/php/extensions/no-debug-non-zts-20100525/imagick.so'
install ok: channel://pecl.php.net/imagick-3.1.2
Extension imagick enabled in php.ini

I see this way as a workaround, not as a fix. It would be great if it was possible using brew directly.
