For now Homebrew devs are forced to use a hack to get around this problem, but the solution should be very simple on Macvim's side.In MacPorts I have been working around this with patches to the configure script. I only took the python versions provided by MacPorts into account, so I was able to remove some cruft for old versions of python.

Be aware that these are untested with any other python distribution or with the Python.framework versions provided by OS X releases.

You search PATH for any python-config, which will have an unknown version. But in the next line you hardcode version 2.7.
By the way, the Python detection is the same code in vanilla vim. Why don't you have this change in your formula for vim as well?
