Imagemagick installation pain on MacOS via Homebrew

I often stumble upon the pain of installing imagemagick via homebrew on MacOS for the new trainees on their iMacs.

Just as a note-to-myself:

brew remove imagemagick
rm -rf `brew --cache imagemagick`
brew install -f imagemagick --disable-openmp

Segmentation fault when installing imagemagick

If you ever encounter with the following error while installing imagemagick on Mac OSX using HomeBrew:

 /Users/sts-109-/.rvm/gems/ruby-1.9.2-p180/gems/rmagick-2.13.1/lib/RMagick.rb:1635: [BUG] Segmentation fault
ruby 1.9.2p180 (2011-02-18 revision 30909) [x86_64-darwin10.6.0]?

This does the job.

brew remove imagemagick
rm -rf `brew --cache imagemagick`
brew install -f imagemagick --disable-openmp
