I have looked over the file in Github and the delegate X11 is there but as an option
depends_on "jpeg" => :recommended
depends_on "libpng" => :recommended
depends_on "libtiff" => :recommended
depends_on "freetype" => :recommended

depends_on :x11 => :optional
depends_on "fontconfig" => :optional
depends_on "little-cms" => :optional
depends_on "little-cms2" => :optional
depends_on "libwmf" => :optional
depends_on "librsvg" => :optional
depends_on "liblqr" => :optional
depends_on "openexr" => :optional
depends_on "ghostscript" => :optional
depends_on "webp" => :optional
depends_on "openjpeg" => :optional
depends_on "fftw" => :optional
depends_on "pango" => :optional
depends_on :perl => ["5.5", :optional]
now if I knew a little more about code I could unravel it, but alas I don't have experience in this, but because it is optional Brew doesn't install it probably because it doesn't see the flags from XQuartz
any advice would be much appreciated, thanks in advance

Sorry, I cannot help as I have no experience with Homebrew. I am surprised since no one else has reported this problem. The only options are to install IM 6 from MacPorts or install the ImageMagick 7 binary. The latter would be easier.

Perhaps one of the other Mac users can provide more information about installing from Homebrew.

So what was the solution to your issue? What step did you miss?
