Note that I ran into this issue but solved it by installing the cheetah python package as suggested by the error in the build log.

I had to run xcode-select --install for the libxml python package to install.

Any ideas?

I was running into compile issues with gnuradio on El Capitan 10.11.2 with cmake 3.4.1. [get_filename_component called with incorrect number of arguments]

Downgrading cmake to 3.3.2 allowed gnuradio to compile [https://github.com/Homebrew/legacy-homebrew/issues/46000]:

brew install cmake; brew unlink cmake
cd /usr/local/Library
git checkout -b cmake 0036e3d1
brew install cmake; brew switch cmake 3.3.2
git checkout master
brew install gnuradio

Also there is no need to use brew tap metacollin/gnuradio anymore, as it's now in the homebrew repo. [noted via https://github.com/chleggett/homebrew-gqrx]
